Albany County Attorney Charged
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Attorney General's Office has charged Albany County's former top prosecutor, saying he used county money to buy cameras and computer equipment for his own use.
Richard Bohling was charged Thursday with nine counts, including larceny, wrongful taking of property and official misconduct. He has been summoned to appear in court Friday.
Investigators say Bohling, while serving as the Albany County Attorney and prosecutor, used public money to pay for expensive cameras, computer equipment and a membership to the Laramie Rifle Range.
An agent with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation says Albany County's clerk audited vouchers that the county attorney's office had turned over for payment and found nearly $20,000 in questionable spending.
Bohling did not seek re-election in November.
