Trakas stays in office: Judge rules he didn’t violate Charter

Councilman Ernie Trakas can stay in office and did not violate the county Charter with his work as an attorney for public school districts, a St. Charles County judge ruled last week.

In a nine-page ruling issued Sept. 18, Circuit Court Judge Daniel Pelikan disagreed with the previous recommendation of a special prosecutor, St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar, that Trakas violated the County Charter and legally had already vacated the office.
