Whitley County Sheriff brought to justice local reporters

Former Sheriff Lawrence Hodge sentenced in Extortion and Bribery conviction

Once again the pain of Meth and Oxycodone break apart the bedrock of small town America and rural Kentucky. Whitley County is a beautiful area full of history, Cumberland Falls and the birthplace of KFC. It is a shame that the people they elected to protect them turned into a brute thug, drug addict and illegal gun dealer. Thanks to two great young reporters, good research and Open Records laws the Sheriff was unable to cover up his illegal flow of cash and drugs supposedly stored in his evidence locker. 60 Minutes did a great cover of this impressive story.

Congratulations to Adam.
