BLOUNTVILLE, TN (WJHL) -

A woman who's made a career out of helping animals is now in trouble with the law.

A Sullivan County Grand Jury indicted Connie Bailey on one count of forgery last week. According to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, Bailey was booked into jail today and then released on $10,000 bond.

Bailey used to work for the Animal Resource Center on Highway 126 in Blountville and is now listed as the director of the newly created Paws of Hope Animal Wellness Center in Bluff City.

Her former place of employment was the subject of a Community Watchdog investigation back in January. At the time, we reported the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office was investigating the possible theft of thousands of dollars worth of missing pet medications at the ARC.

Assistant District Attorney William Harper says Bailey's arrest is linked to that "extensive" investigation. However, the forgery charge she now faces does not specifically address any missing drugs. Instead it accuses Bailey of forging the signature of veterinarian and Animal Resource Center Board Chairwoman Dr. Regina Brotherton back in March 2012.

Bailey's defense attorney Clifton Corker says she is looking forward to her day in court.

"We look forward to addressing this in court," Corker said. "We will vigorously defend this case."
