Judge Ross Stoffer administered the ceremonial oath to celebrate Ashley Siebrandt as the new Clerk Magistrate of Wayne County Court on July 7, 2021. State Court Administrator Corey Steel welcomed attendees, emphasizing the importance of the clerk magistrate position to the courts and providing services to the public. Local officials, Seventh District Probation Officers, and AOCP staff gathered in the beautiful Wayne County Courtroom to observe the ceremony and enjoy conversation and refreshments. Siebrandt assumed the clerk magistrate position in October 2020, but the ceremony was delayed due to coronavirus-related health directives.

“Ashley’s experience in the probation office gave her an introduction to criminal court cases and public service. In her new role as Clerk Magistrate, she is demonstrating professionalism, dedication, patience, and organizational skills that will serve the Wayne County Court well into the future,” according to Sheryl Connolly, Trial Court Services Director for Nebraska County Courts.

Siebrandt replaced KimBerly Hansen, who served Wayne County Court for almost 20 years before her retirement in August of last year.

As Clerk Magistrate, Siebrandt will shoulder the responsibilities of overseeing the court's day-to-day operations under the sitting judge.
