Carolina Public Press reports that among the former and current workers arrested on Monday was Cindy Palmer, the former director of the Cherokee County Department of Social Services and wife of Cherokee County Sheriff Derrick Palmer. 

The other two are former Child Protective Unit supervisor David Huges and former agency attorney Scott Lindsay.
