Investigator says no truth to Ozakuee County judge's belief that others in courthouse are out to get him

PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) — An investigator says a Wisconsin judge was wrong when he accused his co-workers of criminal misconduct.

Investigator Patrick Fiedler, a former Judge and U.S. Attorney, says there's no truth to Ozaukee County Judge Joe Voiland's belief that others in the courthouse are out to get him.

Fiedler began an investigation in February into claims that Clerk of Courts Mary Lou Mueller's office improperly deleted or altered online court records and abused register in probate authority.

The Post Crescent reports that Fiedler released his investigation findings on Tuesday. Fiedler says Mueller and her staff did make errors in some of the cases Voiland referenced but noted that they were a result of human error and not "an attempt to usurp the authority of Judge Voiland."

This is the second investigation second prompted by Voiland.
