Seward County Court Clerk Sentenced for Misuse of Funds

Joe Denoyer - January 21, 2021 2:07 am

A former Seward County court clerk who kept thousands of dollars in traffic court payments for herself has been sentenced to a year of probation.

Sonia Johnson, 57, an ex-clerk for Seward County District Court, was sentenced Tuesday and ordered to pay $2,962 in restitution and a $2,500 fine.

She pleaded no contest in August to one count of misuse of public funds, a felony. She would serve six months in jail if she violates her probation.

The Kansas Attorney General’s Office said Johnson kept more than $8,000 in payments for herself but returned all but $2,962.
