Judge delays hearing on probation revocation

December 18, 2003

A district court judge has continued a hearing until January on whether to revoke a former Basehor city employee's probation.

In March, Jennifer Srubas, a former Basehor assistant city clerk, pleaded no contest to misuse of public funds stemming from her employment with the city.

As assistant clerk, she was responsible for handling utility bills and municipal court costs.

In exchange for her plea, prosecutors dropped a felony theft charge. Srubas received an 18-month suspended sentence, was placed on probation and repaid the city $15,000.

Leavenworth County prosecutors scheduled the hearing to consider whether a judge should revoke her probation after they learned Srubas had pled guilty in November to misdemeanor theft charges in Johnson County.

The Johnson County charges stem from an incident in which Srubas was caught attempting to steal 40 pounds of seafood, valued at $800, from a Wal-Mart in Shawnee. She was placed on 12 months' probation in Johnson County.

Leavenworth County prosecutors said Srubas did not inform her probation officer about the Johnson County case against her.

The parole revocation hearing will be at 9 a.m. Jan. 9 in Leavenworth County District Court.
