​Audit Faults Topeka Court over Communication

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An audit report says Topeka's municipal court has been affected by a lack of professional respect between the court and the prosecutor's office. But city and court officials dispute the audit's claims, saying the problems have been resolved. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the city commissioned the audit over concerns raised in a federal report on Ferguson, Missouri. The Topeka audit report also faults the municipal court on high turnover rates in the clerk and prosecutor offices. Administrative Judge Vic Miller says the auditor's weeklong visit this summer doesn't reflect the court's daily workings. Miller says the audit's assertion of a long-standing problem is wrong and that communication between parties has been restored since a new chief prosecutor took over in October.
