Pre-trial conference is canceled

A pre-trial conference for former Whitley County Sheriff Lawrence Hodge on state charges was canceled.

The Corbin Times-Tribune reports the Kentucky Bureau of Prisons cancelled the appearance due to concerns Hodge allegedly visited people while in Whitley County for his February 6th court date.

Another date will be set when the matter is resolved.

Hodge is currently serving a 15 and a-half year federal prison sentence.

The newspaper reporters that exposed his corruption were just profiled Sunday night on CBS’s 60 Minutes.
