A former Dodge County sheriff’s detective says the incumbent sheriff was at the very least misleading when it came to her education on her resume before she was appointed to the post, the sheriff says that’s nonsense.
Former detective Bob Neumann says Ninmann falsified her resume by implying she had an associate’s degree in criminal justice, when she was still six credits short. Ninmann says isn't hiding anything or trying to be misleading and says Department of Justice investigators were aware of her educational status when they interviewed her for the job. Ninmann was appointed sheriff when Todd Nehls retired last year. Nehls
recommended her for the post. Ninmann is running for re-election and faces a challenge from sheriff’s sergeant Dale Schmidt in the Republican primary In August.
