Ex-Hancock County employee, husband plead not guilty

Posted: Updated:

A former Hancock County Engineer's Office employee and her husband have pleaded not guilty to felonies in a case officials say stems from a false bid for the purchase of county-owned land.
   The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that 58-year-old Sharon Louise Rockow and 59-year-old Gary Edward Rockow, both of rural Klemme, entered the pleas Friday.
   Sharon Rockow has been charged with felonious misconduct in office. Her husband has been charged with aiding and abetting misconduct in office.
   Investigators say that while Sharon Rockow worked in the engineer's office, she and her husband delivered a sealed bid in someone else's name on Sept. 19, 2014, for county property knowing the bid would later become public record.
