In 2007 The Yolo County Board of Supervisors were informed of then, Probation Program Manager Majorie Rist of her allowing staff to work from home and she too rarely showed up at the office. This conduct occured and was approved while then, Chief Probation Officer Don Meyer was in charge. Chief Meyer reccommended after his resignation to the Board of Supervisors, that Ms Rist be promoted to Chief Probation Officer and thus her conduct continued. Many who worked in the circles of Law Enforcement questioned a suspected unethical relationship between Rist and Meyer. 

Ms Rist as the Chief Probation Officer encouraged staff to put in illegal overtime slips of which they failed to work. Her motives were to solicite/pay for loyalty to cover for her own unethical conduct. Officers who illegally submitted overtime slips and anyone who aided and abetted them needs to be held accountable. 

Ms Rist's unethical relationship with CEO Housman who has a criminal record as a drug/cocaine abuser and her role as a Chief Probation Officer brings to light a potential motive to illegally procure Yolo County funds for personal use. An audit and thorough investigation should be able to uncover any illegal conduct and charges need to be filed if said investigation proves that this occurred.
