The former Marshall County Clerk was convicted Tuesday of felony misuse of public funds.
According to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office, Sonya L. Stohs, 44, of Marysville pleaded guilty in Marshall County District Court to one count of felony misuse of public funds. District Judge John L. Weingart accepted the plea and also said Stohs owes the county $372,003 for the charges she racked up on county credit cards, according to The Marysville Advocate.
Weingart scheduled sentencing for 11 a.m. Jan. 7. Stohs faces a potential prison sentence of 31-136 months.
The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Secret Service that showed between May 2013 and April 2019, Stohs used funds belonging to Marshall County to pay for various personal items.
