Former prosecutor found guilty of misdemeanor harassment

The former deputy prosecutor of Cross County was found guilty of misdemeanor harassment before a special district judge, according to documents filed in district court on Tuesday.

According to court documents, Michael Ladd was given a six month probation and issued a no contact order with his neighbors.

Ladd and his brother were charged with misdemeanor harassment after Ladd's neighbors filed a complaint in district Court.

According to court documents, Ladd's neighbors filed charges against Ladd, his brother and another person. One woman claimed Ladd pulled into her driveway and began cursing at her husband.

Ladd's brother, David, plead no contest to misdemeanor harassment and was given a six month probation. He was ordered not to have contact with the victims for one year.

Ladd was the former deputy prosecutor for Cross County and resigned on September 8, according to 1st Judicial Prosecutor Fletcher Long.

In early September, Long told Region 8 News Michael Ladd told him “the pressures from the job were excessive.”

Ladd, who was also the lawyer for the Cross County Quorum Court, will no longer represent the county, according to County Judge Jack Caubble.
