LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case of former Clay County Circuit Judge R. Cletus Maricle and others on Jan. 25 in Cincinnati.
Maricle is serving more than 26 years in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to gain power and control politics in an eastern Kentucky county.
Former Clay County School Superintendent Douglas C. Adams is serving a 293-month sentence and one-time county clerk Freddy Thompson is serving a 150-month sentence.
The men were part of a group of eight officials convicted in March of multiple charges, including racketeering, money laundering and voter fraud stemming from the 2002, 2004 and 2006 elections.
A three-judge panel will consider whether to overturn part or all of the convictions and sentences for the men.
