Carter works as assistant district supervisor of the Oklahoma County Jail Program within the Correction Department's Division of Community Corrections and is paid $62,724 a year, records indicate.

Jones is director of the agency and is paid $135,709 a year.

Jones said he has had no input in Carter's salary and didn't even know what it was.
