Shawnee County has the esteemed privilege of hosting Kansas’ state capital and the county seat, Topeka. Shawnee County is home to 173,000 residents and is named for the Shawnee tribe of Native Americans whereas Topeka is the word meaning a good place to grow Prairie potatoes.
A number of Shawnee County residents are also practicing lawyers. Lawyers in Shawnee County take a miscellaneous mishmash of cases, some typical examples include: chapter 13 bankruptcy, personal injury, estate administration, divorce, and DUI cases. Wichita lawyers occasionally refer a case to Shawnee County attorneys when the case is being tried in Topeka instead of in Wichita or Sedgwick County.
Recently in Shawnee County, Tyler Tregellas of Topeka was arrested for allegedly putting a Dillon’s employee in a headlock and stealing his phone. When the employee called deputies they quarreled with the boy while trying to arrest him and booked him into the Shawnee County Jail on suspicion of robbery, felony obstruction, criminal threat, battery of a law enforcement officer, criminal damage to property, and being a minor consuming alcohol.
