Judge Dismisses Ouster Against Topeka City Councilman

KSAL StaffJanuary 9, 2016

A Shawnee County judge quickly dismissed a civil action to remove a Topeka city councilman charged with child abuse from the council. But prosecutors say they will refile the action later.

In a hearing Friday, Judge Franklin Theis dismissed the ouster effort against Jonathan Robert Schumm.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the district attorney’s office sought the dismissal earlier in the day. But prosecutors said they would refile the civil action after the criminal case against Schumm is resolved.

Schumm and his wife, Allison Nicole Schumm, are charged with one criminal count each of aggravated battery and four counts of endangering a child. Court records show that Jonathan Schumm is accused of choking a child and threatening to “kill him.”

He has denied the allegations.
