The Kentucky Supreme Court has turned down a request to reinstate a law license for a former judge
The Kentucky Supreme Court has turned down a bid by a former Pikeville judge to regain his law license. Wymt is reporting a Kentucky Supreme Court majority rejected a bid from former Pikeville judge Charles Huffman to reinstate his law license. Huffman pleaded guilty to extortion during his time serving as a judge in Pikeville. He had admitted to promising a defendant a sentence of community service in exchange for prescription drugs. Huffman served a 15 month prison sentence. The court agreed that Huffmans, willingness to trade lenient sentences for prescription drugs was too serious of a violation to allow him to practice law again in Kentucky.
