Ex-Walker aide forced to turn over emails

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A former top aide to Governor Scott Walker will have to give up her emails.

A Wisconsin appeals court judge has rejected a request from Kelly Rindfleisch to keep her correspondence secret while she sought to have her conviction overturned.

Rindfleisch pleaded guilty to doing campaign work on county time and was sentenced to six months in jail in 2012.

She worked for Walker while he was Milwaukee County executive.

Appeals Judge Patricia Curley said Rindfleisch's documents containing private information, such as medical information, could be kept secret.

Rindfleisch has 30 days to request that specific documents remain sealed.

Her defense attorney, Franklyn Gimbel, says the ruling imposes a heavy burden on Rindfleisch.

He says he's reviewing whether he can appeal the decision.
