The possible crime

KRS § 519.060 Tampering with public records.

(a) He knowingly makes a false entry in or falsely alters any public record; or

(b) Knowing he lacks the authority to do so, he intentionally destroys, mutilates, conceals, removes, or otherwise impairs the availability of any public records; or

(c) Knowing he lacks the authority to retain it, he intentionally refuses to deliver up a public record in his possession upon proper request of a public servant lawfully entitled to receive such record for examination or other purposes.

(2) Tampering with public records is a Class D felony.

Effective:July 14, 1992
History: Amended 1992 Ky. Acts ch.16, sec.1, effective July 14, 1992

 Don't get excited!!

There's still a good chance, in my opinion, that all can be explained as pure and innocent incompetence.
