CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Prosecutors say the mayor of a small Wyoming town and a police officer were charged this week after allegedly misusing a police database.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that Evansville Mayor Jennifer Sorenson was charged with misusing public office while officer Matt McGraw was charged with conspiracy to misuse public office and drug possession.

Neither have entered pleas to the charges.

Town attorney Kyle Ridgeway says McGraw was suspended without pay on Thursday. The mayor’s status has not changed. A town public meeting is scheduled Monday to discuss the situation.
