Hearing Scheduled For West Ky Judge Charged With Misconduct In Office
A hearing for a west Kentucky judge charged with nine counts of misconduct is scheduled for June.
First District Circuit Court Judge Timothy Langford allegedly requested that inmates from Fulton County Detention Center perform their community service by helping rebuild his church.
Other counts allege that Langford used publicly-owned equipment to aid in the reconstruction of the church, improperly appointed his legal assistant Jeremiah McCarty to administer the ankle monitor program, instructed McCarty to contact defendants to encourage them to perform community service on the reconstruction of the church, signed documents verifying community service work performed by criminal defendants on probation in Langford's court, among others.
Langford denied all allegations in a response to the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission.
His hearing on June 19 is at the McCracken County Circuit Courthouse. Langford’s office said he is still presiding over cases.
