John Cady’s response

John Cady
Platte County Prosecutor

Jul 19, 2013 — I am not the Platte County Prosecutor I am the city attorney for Lake Waukomis, MO. I am a private attorney representing the City of Lake Waukomis. It is not unusual for a charge to be initially brought in municipal court then referred to the county prosecutor 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 his office review this matter to determine if state charges should be filed. As the Lake Waukomis city attorney I am not authorized to file any charges other than municipal ordinance violations . John Cady
