SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County Mayor Nancy Workman is scheduled for a court appearance Monday morning.
Workman was brought to jail last night where she took a booking photo and had her fingerprints taken before being released about an hour later.
She faces two felony counts of misusing public funds. Prosecutors say she misused about 17-thousand dollars in taxpayer money to hire a bookkeeper for the nonprofit organization where her daughter works.
Meantime, the Republican mayor hired former deputy Salt Lake County District Attorney Greg Skordas to represent her yesterday. Skordas is a Democrat, and also a candidate for the Attorney General's office.
