The Kansas Attorney General’s office last week charged the former Marshall County clerk for misusing public funds.

The office filed the charge against Sonya Stohs, 44, of Marysville in Marshall County District Court on July 16.

The complaint alleges that from May 2013 to April 2019, Stohs used funds belonging to the county to pay for various personal items amounting to more than $100,000.

Stohs surrendered to law enforcement officials Wednesday at the Marshall County Jail, entering her first appearance in court that afternoon.

Stohs resigned from her position as county clerk June 18.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service investigated the case.
