Former council employee hit with another CCC charge

UPDATE 4.30PM: Craig Maudsley has been slapped with a second misconduct charge after an investigation by the Crime and Corruption Commission.

This afternoon Mr Maudsley, the council's former Works Parks and Recreation chief operating officer was charged with one count of misconduct in public office.

It is the second charge of misconduct in public office for Mr Maudsley, who was first served a notice to appear in September.  

He was accused of abusing his authority to benefit an Ipswich contractor, Wayne Innes, in a deal that allegedly caused financial detriment to another business.

Mr Maudsley intends to fight the charge. 

EARLIER: The Crime and Corruption has charged a former Ipswich City Council employee with misconduct in public office.

A 54-year-old Yamanto man was served with a notice to appear in court to face one charge of misconduct in public office after a CCC investigation.

The former Ipswich City Council employee is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on May 2.

A spokesman for the CCC said the investigation was ongoing, and the "CCC is unable to comment further".

The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
