Former Marshall Co Clerk charged
07/18/2019

(KMZA)--The former Marshall County Clerk has been charged with felony misuse of public funds.

According to a news release from the office of Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt,  44-year-old Sonya Stohs, of Marysville, was charged late Tuesday in Marshall County District Court.

The complaint alleges from May 2013 to April 2019, Stohs used funds belonging to Marshall County to pay for various personal items, in excess of $100,000.

The release says Stohs surrendered to law enforcement Wednesday  morning at the Marshall County Jail and made her first appearance in Marshall Court District Court Wednesday afternoon.

The investigation was conducted by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service.

On April 4, KBI agents served search warrants at multiple locations in Marysville—including the Marshall County Clerk’s Office.

Schmidt’s office is prosecuting the case at the request of the Marshall County Attorney.

Stohs resigned as county clerk June 18.  She had held the position since 2002.
