STANFORD - The death of Lincoln Circuit Judge Robert Gillum in April left at least one loose end in court, the probation future of Elizabeth Hill.
Hill, convicted of stealing about $280,000 from the Lincoln County Industrial Authority, was on shock probation when recently accused several times of leaving the county without permission of her parole officer.
In March, after several court appearances, Gillum told Hill she was trying the court's patience, and verbally ordered her to go straight to work in Danville and home, nowhere else outside the county without his permission.
Gillum died shortly after without having signed a written order to that affect.
Hill then filed a motion to amend the condition of her probation to allow her to leave the county more easily.
