WILMINGTON, Ohio — After a second impaired driving charge, an assistant prosecutor in Clinton County is still on the payroll.

According to court records, police accused 28-year-old Lindsey Fleissner, of Wilmington, with her second operating a vehicle while impaired charge in less than a month Thursday. Police previously accused her of the same crime on May 1.

This time around, the charges also included registration falsification and failure to control charges.

Clinton County Prosecutor Rick Moyer confirmed Fleissner is still employed in his office, but -- like with the first charge -- Moyer declined comment and emphasized he would not be involved in her prosecution.

The second charge came just one day before Fleissner was scheduled to appear in court for the first charge. Fleissner was arraigned on the second charge Monday morning, before returning to Clinton County Municipal Court for a hearing on the first.
