Five former Washington County jail employees accused in a food stamp scam were ordered back to court after they obtain attorneys.
A judge on Tuesday said the group will enter their pleas January 13.
Gladys Johnson, Linda Martin, Latoya Rogers, Maryilyn Siglar and Patricia Slaughter were all indicted last week for tampering with a government document.
Investigators say they received hundreds of dollars of food stamps after fraudulently applying for assistance following Hurricane Ike.
All were fired from their jobs at the Washington County jail.
