JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Michelle Shirk has filed for divorce from Public Defender Matt Shirk.

Matt Shirk has been under fire since Action News began investigating claims of misconduct inside the public defender's office last July.

Former employees told Action News Matt Shirk flirted with young female staffers. Action News also obtained questionable text messages and emails Shirk exchanged with female employees.

In August, Gov. Rick Scott appointed a special prosecutor to review the public defender's office.

Action News is going to the Duval County Courthouse to get a copy of the divorce filing. We’ll update this story as soon as we learn more.

That is the right move lady, as no smart woman should stay married to a pervert. I just wish our city leaders were smart enough to divorce him from any further public service.
