Former Whitley County Sheriff Sentencing Postponed

  • {Kentucky}...A hearing in the case of former Whitley County Sheriff Lawrence Hodge was postponed again Tuesday for unknown reasons that are under seal. Hodge had been scheduled for sentencing in August after pleading guilty in May to using his office to take kickbacks, distribute drugs and pay for personal expenses. His plea agreement called for a 15 1/2 year prison sentence. That hearing was also postponed. Hodge’s next hearing is scheduled for October.
