Former State Court of Appeals Judge David Barber has been charged with second degree criminal trespassing.
Barber was issued a criminal summons alleging he went to Prestonsburg High School to try and get two juveniles to fight, but Barber's lawyer says his client is innocent.
"These are serious allegations alleging an attorney at law, committed a crime, and we take that seriously. I believe this could constitute defamatory conduct," said Barber's Lawyer Jerry Patton.
Floyd County Attorney Keith Bartley says the law applies equally to everyone, and that a summons was issued only after police recommended the charge.
