HINDMAN, Ky. (WYMT) - A federal appeals court has upheld the 2008 convictions of the Knott County Judge Executive and three others in a vote buying scandal.
Judge Executive Randy Thompson along with John Mac Combs, Phillip Champion and Ronnie Adams allegedly schemed to use public funds to pave private driveways in exchange for votes in 2006.
The Lexington Herald Leader reports it is unclear when the men might start serving their sentences.
Thompson was re-elected for a second full term in 2010, while his conviction was being appealed.
Thompson referred all questions to his attorney.
