Third District Court Judge Moves Case Involving Former Summit County Employee

A Third District Court judge has agreed to move to a different venue, outside of Summit County, for the case of a former victim advocate with the county, who’s been charged with misusing public monies.

The charges filed last month against 62-year-old Marsha Probst say that as part of her county employment, she received checks sent to the Victims Assistance Program from a Park City group, Wasatch Womenade. Allegedly she deposited the funds in a banking account in her own name.

Her defense attorney, Gail Laser, had asked the court for a change in venue, saying that Probst is a prominent community member and facing the charges, before old friends and colleagues, would add an element of humiliation.

The prosecution agreed with the request.

In a telephone conference last week, Judge Patrick Corum agreed to the request. The case will be moved to Salt Lake but will still be heard by Judge Corum, which was acceptable to the defense.

Before the change, Probst is set to make an Initial Appearance at the Silver Creek Courthouse next Monday, July 30th.
