Hearing has been continued

A hearing for a former sheriff, who admitted to using his job to deal drugs and steal money, has been continued.

Lawrence Hodge has already been sentenced to 15-and-a-half years in prison on federal charges for taking 150-thousand dollars from the Whitley County Sheriff's Department.

Monday's hearing was going to deal with state charges of abuse of the public trust.

An investigation is also now underway into how much money Hodge is spending while he is locked up.
