The top prosecutor in the Panhandle's Cheyenne County has been given another county to serve and help protect.
SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - The Scottsbluff Star-Herald says (http://bit.ly/SzJpwZ) Paul Schaub has been appointed county attorney for neighboring Deuel County and will serve through January 2015.
Schaub is filling the remaining term of Doug Palik. In September the Nebraska Supreme Court suspended Palik's law license for a year. The court says Palik had mishandled the administration of a woman's estate and lied to cover up his misdeeds.
Palik was ordered to repay $60,000 plus interest to an heir who had not received money due to him from the woman's estate.
Schaub has been Cheyenne County Attorney since 1995.
Two attorneys in Schaub's Cheyenne County office also will provide services to Deuel County.
