Probation hearing scheduled

December 3, 2003

A former Basehor city worker's probation could be revoked later this month during a hearing in Leavenworth County District Court.

In November, Jennifer Srubas, a Basehor native, pled guilty to misdemeanor theft charges in Johnson County District Court and was sentenced to a 12-month probation term. Srubas had been caught trying to steal about 40 pounds of seafood, valued at about $800, from a Wal-mart store in Shawnee.

At the time, Srubas was on probation in Leavenworth County. And according to prosecutors, she did not inform her probation officer of the Johnson County charges.

Now, Srubas is to appear at 9 a.m. Dec. 12 in Leavenworth County District Court, where a judge will consider whether to revoke her probation and, possibly, sentence her to prison.

In Leavenworth County, Srubas, a former assistant Basehor city clerk, was charged last year with misuse of public funds and felony theft in connection with money missing from Basehor city coffers. She later pled no contest to misuse of public funds; the felony theft charge was dropped. She received an 18-month suspended sentence, was placed on probation and paid the city $15,000 restitution. At the time, prosecutors said if Srubas violated her probation agreement, they would seek seven months of prison time.
