Marionville Fires Court Administrator

February 22, 2011|by Joe Daues KSPR News

The city of Marionville is investigating the former court administrator.   Mayor Bob Duda jr. confirmed to KSPR NEWS the city fired Rohlman two weeks ago without giving a reason.     Duda said the police chief is looking into Rohlman because of documents she shredded.

As court administrator for nearly 8 years Rohlman was in charge of the court.   She said her duties included things like collecting  fines, setting the docket and keeping court records.

"I wasn't even at the meeting," she said  "They called me at home... it was quite a surprise."

Rohlman said The Missouri Supreme Court allows lower courts to destroy traffic tickets that are three years old as long as they do not involve drugs and alcohol.   

"In order to shred those tickets you must get an order from sitting judge, which I did," she said. 

She says the documents she shredded were from 2007 completed fines and cases.


Rohlman said the tickets that involved drugs and alcohol were in a separate box and were not shredded.

More of our interview with Rohlman will be added later.
