Former Robertson County District Attorney Indicted

FRANKLIN - Former Robertson County District Attorney John Paschall is out of jail on $30,000 bond.

Paschall turned himself into the Sheriff's Office Wednesday afternoon. He was indicted earlier in the day by a grand jury for misapplication of fiduciary property greater than $200,000, which is a first degree felony.

According to the indictment, the theft occurred from September 1997 to August 2010. The indictment does not specify what he did with the money other than use it contrary to the Last Will and Testament of Marium Oscar.

Oscar died in 2004 and Paschall is the executor of her estate.

The case was presented to the grand jury by a special prosecutor from the Attorney General's Office. Paschall was the DA in Robertson County for more than 20 years before he was defeated in 2012 by current District Attorney Coty Siegert.

If convicted, Paschall faces between 5 and 99 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

More and more officials (judges, lawyers, police, financial advisors) are showing up in the news indicted. And yet, they are believed in court over family time after time.

When public officials steal, they should receive a tougher sentence.
