A Harrison County man accused of falsifying accounts and conspiracy while working with the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office entered a plea in court on Wednesday.

Timothy Rock appeared before Judge Thomas Bedell where he pleaded not guilty on all charges.

According to court documents, Rock, along with another man, Steven Snyder, is accused of falsifying, altering and modifying documentation of various payments ranging from $30 to $400 during his time on the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office Street Crimes & Drugs (SCAD Unit). Some of these falsified documents concerned payments to confidential informants.

Judge Bedell set a joint trial date for Rock and co-defendant Snyder for August 19.

Rock was placed on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.

The indictment of both Rock and Snyder was unsealed earlier in February.
