Missing Money in Callaway Co. Court

Posted by Warren Krech on October 31, 2013

Missouri Auditor Tom Schweich says authorities are investigating missing funds in the Callaway County Circuit Court.

Schweich released a report Wednesday on the clerk’s office in Fulton. The circuit also includes Boone County, but the courthouse in Columbia is not being investigated.

The audit cites more than $11,000 in “problematic” transactions and at least $355 in missing funds. It gave the office a rating of “poor,” and will follow up on the audit in the future.

Schweich’s report says the clerk in charge of the affected accounts was fired last fall, and says a special prosecutor has been appointed in the case.

The current circuit clerk says she’s working to implement the recommendations in the audit.
