Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane today announced charges against Lebanon County Clerk of Courts Lisa Arnold for allegedly failing to report DUI convictions and other information to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT).

As the Clerk of Courts, Arnold is required to report DUI convictions or acquittals within 10 days after final judgment. According to the criminal complaint, Arnold failed to provide PennDOT with the required information 203 times between January 1st, 2013 and October 24th, 2013.

The charges state that Arnold directed her staff to not participate in the notification process and kept confiscated drivers’ licenses and associated paperwork in a plastic bag in a filing cabinet.

Arnold is charged with one count of obstructing administration of law or other government function and one count of failure to comply with provisions of subchapter (reports by courts). A preliminary hearing is scheduled for February 13th at Lebanon County Central Court.

The case will be prosecuted in Lebanon County by Deputy Attorney General Clarke Madden of the Attorney General’s Criminal Prosecutions Section.

    I guess I'm confused! What was she gaining from keeping such info from penndot? Was it lack of motivation to do her job correctly, laziness or did she know the parties involved that got the DUI's? Please help me to understand this!
