Former Webb Lake Clerk Enters Not Guilty Plea

Monday, August 15th, 2011 at 8:33 am

Linda Frost, the former Town of Webb Lake clerk who has been charged with two counts of misconduct in office, plead not guilty to those counts at her arraignment last week in the Burnett County Circuit Court. She faces one count of theft and one count of obstructing an officer.

Frost, who is from Superior,  worked as the town clerk from 1991 to 2007.

Frost’s defense attorney entered the pleas on Frost’s behalf, as Frost wasn’t present during Wednesday’s arraignment.

Another court date has been set for September 26th. It is possible that a plea deal could be worked out between prosuctors and Frost’s attorney, which would prevent the case from going to trial.

Prior to the arraignment, Burnett County District Attorney Bill Norine told the Burnett County Sentinel that the two sides were working toward a resolution and he didn’t see the case going to trial.

The maximum penalties if the Frost case makes it to trial, would be fines totalling over $30,000 and more than 10 years in prison.

Until her next court appearance Frost remains free on a $5,000 signature bond.
