KENTUCKY (NEWS10) – A county clerk in Kentucky is going back to work this morning after spending several days in jail for not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, and it’s anybody’s guess whether she will obey the law.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was released from jail last Tuesday, after being held in contempt for ignoring a court order to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Davis’ defense attorney tells CNN she is still undecided about whether or not she will comply with the court order.

Her deputies have been issuing licenses in her absence.

It is not clear whether Davis will interfere with that process or allow it to continue.
