Knott County Officials Appealing Conviction

Knott County Judge Executive Randy Thompson and three others were in court Friday appealing a 2008 vote buying conviction. John Mac Combs, Phillip Champion, Ronnie Adams and Thompson allegedly allowed county blacktop and gravel be applied to private drives in exchange for votes leading up to the 2006 general election. An attorney for Thompson says a ruling could take between two weeks to three months.
