Felony Charges Filed Against Moniteau County Assessor

Three felony charges and one misdemeanor are now filed against the Moniteau County Assessor.

Charges of forgery, stealing, filing false documents and fraudulent use of a credit/debit service have been brought against Amanda Trimble yesterday by the Moniteau County Prosecutor’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Office opened an investigation in mid-November following a whistleblower complaint alleged possible fraud, forgery and theft.

The office found Trimble used county funds for several trips that did not involve county business and submitted altered documents and invoices for reimbursement and payment for those trips.

Trimble is scheduled to appear in Court March 26th.
