After Rowan County clerk Kim Davis was taken into federal custody Thursday for repeatedly refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, every deputy clerk but Davis’ son have said they would grant licenses.

Local stations reported the only deputy who did not agree to wed gay couples is Davis’ son, but he will not be held in contempt, LEX 18 reported.

Davis and all of her staff were summoned to court by a federal judge Sept. 1.
