JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed a civil petition and misdemeanor charges against a Cass County Circuit Clerk on Tuesday.
The charge alleges Amy Bell mismanaged money and court records.
The civil petition asks the circuit court to remove Bell from office.
Bell was suspended from her position back in August after she hired a close friend to oversee special projects.
Koster said that although the friend was paid for her work, the work was not completed.
