John Cady’s response

John Cady
Platte County Prosecutor

Jul 18, 2013 — I am not the Platte County Prosecutor. I am a private attorney who represents the City of Lake Waukomis. It is not unusual for charges to be initially brought at the municipal court level and then referred to the County Prosecutor's Office for review to determine if more serious state charges should be filed. Before I was made aware of this petition I had already talked to Eric Zahnd, the Platte County Prosecutor, and requested that their office review this matter to determine if state charges should be filed. As City Attorney I do not have authority to charge anything but municipal ordinance violations. John Cady
