Petersen is an attorney who specialized in adoptions from the Marshall Islands. He faces fraud, forgery and theft charges in Arizona, Utah and from a federal court in Arkansas.

The Board will meet in Executive Session today to discuss a potential replacement for Petersen after deciding to suspend him from county duties.
