Leah Askey – What she’s doing now?


Well ever heard of Leah Askey? Yes, no, maybe? Well, she is a former assistant prosecutor for St. Charles County, Missouri and one of the central figures in the controversial Elizabeth “Betsy” Faria murder case is back in the spotlight with the release of Oxygen’s documentary series “The Thing About Pam”.

Askey was instrumental in prosecuting Russell “Russ” Faria twice over his wife’s murder, but what happened to her after that?

Here we take a look at Leah Askey and provide an update on where she is now and her involvement with Betsy Faria’s case.

Who is Leah Askey?

Alright, let me fill you in on Leah Askey. This gal was a Juris Doctorate graduate from the Saint Louis University School of Law, so you know she’s smart.

She was cruising through her career until she got her hands on the Betsy Faria homicide case. And boy, did she make a splash.

Leah painted Russ as a pot-smoking, wife-beating man who killed his wife over a life insurance policy.

And the jurors bought it hook, line, and sinker. But where’s Leah Askey now, you may ask? Well, let’s just say that things aren’t looking too good for her after new evidence has come to light. Looks like you can’t keep a good lawyer down…unless they’re not being so good after all.

Where is Leah Askey Now?

Hey folks, have you been wondering where Leah Askey is now? Well, let me fill you in on the latest gossip surrounding this scandalous lady.

After being sued by Russ Faria for deliberately ignoring exculpatory evidence, Leah’s name was eventually dismissed from the suit. However, that didn’t stop the Lincoln County Commissioner’s Office from looking into her for criminal and ethical misconduct in 2017.

While she was cleared of any mishandling in Betsy/Russ’ case, it turns out she’s had other complaints against her.

To top it off, Leah was booted out of office in 2018 – a result that many believe was due to her indirect role in Russ’ wrongful conviction. Oh, Leah. What a tangled web you weave.


Okay, listen up folks, because I’ve got some tea to spill about Leah Askey and her academic journey.

This prosecutor started her schooling at Troy Buchanan High School, which, coincidentally, is where I once got detention for talking too much in class.

Anyway, Leah went on to study at Saint Louis University where she got her fancy degree in Juris Doctor – good for her!

But wait, there’s more. She then went to San Diego State University and the University of Missouri for more fancy education. Now, you might be wondering what Leah Askey is up to now, and honestly, same.

But I’m too busy trying to figure out why I didn’t get her drive to achieve so much in school. Sigh, guess I’ll just keep on dreaming about that valedictorian title.


If you’ve ever had a run-in with the law in Lincoln County, you probably remember Leah Askey. She’s the no-nonsense prosecutor who takes her job seriously and isn’t afraid to take on even the toughest cases.

And let’s be real, if you’re on the wrong side of the law, you don’t want to mess with her. But don’t let her tough exterior fool you.

Leah’s dedication to justice is matched only by her sense of humor and love of good wine (or so I’ve heard). Nowadays, Leah Askey is still kicking butt and taking names in the legal world, and we can’t wait to see what she’ll do next. Keep up the good work, Leah!

Leah Askey’s apology 

Hey, have you heard about Leah Askey’s apology? Yeah, the former Lincoln County prosecutor has been making waves lately.

Since her removal as DA, Leah Askey, now Leah Wommack Chaney, has been working as an attorney and counsellor at Chaney Law Group. But that’s not all, folks.

Apparently, she’s had enough of the rumors and speculation surrounding her departure from the DA’s office.

Leah Askey isn’t one to stay quiet, and she’s made it clear that she’s not going to let her character be assassinated for no reason. So basically, she’s throwing down the gauntlet and daring anyone to come at her. Get your popcorn ready, folks, because this is bound to get interesting.

Who is Leah Askey’s ex-husband?

Well, well, well, you’re curious about Leah Askey’s ex-husband, aren’t you? I mean, who wouldn’t be?!

The former Missouri DA has been married not once, but twice! After dissolving her first marriage, she ended up tying the knot with Chris Chaney and became Leah Chaney (catchy, isn’t it?).

However, things have taken a turn for the worse between the two, with Askey accusing her ex-husband of trying to get her disbarred. Yikes! Needless to say, things are heating up for Leah Askey now.

Who knows what’s next for the former DA? Maybe a third marriage, or a political comeback! One thing’s for sure, with Askey, there’s never a dull moment.

What is Leah Askey’s net worth? 

Yoohoo, curious cats! Let’s talk about Ms. Leah Askey, or should I say Chaney now? This legal eagle has flown high since being booted out as District Attorney and now runs a successful private law firm.

But here’s the juicy part – she hasn’t disclosed any deets about her salary and net worth. I mean, come on Leah Askey now, how are we supposed to keep tabs on our legal idols?

Nevertheless, Leah and her hubby have kept a low profile, which is totally respectable. I guess we’ll just have to keep guessing until her fortune is revealed.
