GOSHEN COUNTY – Former Eighth Judicial District Court Clerk Kathi Rickard has been charged with six felony theft charges after an investigation by the State of Wyoming.
Rickard, who resigned earlier this year - though she cited health concerns as the reason - allegedly stole $120,217.65 between 2016 and 2018, according to a press release issued by Goshen County Attorney Eric Boyer. The release said that the county will be seeking restitution for the funds.
The release said the investigation was conducted by the Wyoming Attorney General and the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. Rickard was re-elected to the office in 2018.
After her resignation Brandi Correa was chosen to finish her term.
Charges were filed in the Eighth Judicial Circuit Court in Goshen County, and Laramie County Attorney Spencer Allred will be the prosecuting attorney to avoid a conflict of interest.
