Lake Media/Lake has officially made a Sunshine Law request for the documents relating to the Glenn David Norman case. The request was made at 11:14 a.m. on Thursday, April 19.

Under the Missouri Sunshine Law, a public entity is required to respond to the request within 72 hours or three business days (excluding holidays and weekends).

We sent them a reminder of our Sunshine Law request at 4:37 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24, following up on our request because we had not received a response.

Later that evening, the sheriff's department public information officer called saying that our request was being processed.

On Wednesday, April 25, at approximately 1 p.m., we received an email from the sheriff's department informing us that our Sunshine Law request would cost $180.22. The fees included about a $100 of research time by a sheriff's department sergeant and nearly $60 for clerical time.

The sheriff's department also indicated the fee did not include the cost of mailing, and additional fees would be applied for that.

The department requested we call prior to picking up the documents so that they could make the file available to us. The documents would also require signature and payment at the time of pickup.

A subsequent inquiry filed on Wednesday, April 25, by the Lake Sun requested additional clarification on the sergeant's time as well as the clerical staff time spent fulfilling our request. We have not received a response from the sheriff's department.

The Lake Sun also filed a Sunshine Law request to the Camden County Clerk's Office for payroll records to determine the salary/wages at 2:05 p.m. on Wednesday.

The clerk's office and payroll department responded with the requested information early Thursday morning.

As of 11:30 Thursday morning, there has been no response from the sheriff's department as to when we would receive the clarification on the charges. A second request has been sent to the department.

All information about the outcome of the Glenn David Norman case has been provided by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.

 

**At 12:15 p.m., the sheriff's office sent an email responding to our request for clarification of the charges. The department says they originally sent the email at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 25. We have no record that we received the email.
