Harlan, Harlan County , Kentucky
A regional ethics panel has held a hearing on an accusation against an eastern Kentucky sheriff.
The Harlan Daily Enterprise and WYMT report the Cumberland Valley Area Development District ethics panel held a hearing Tuesday in London on the matter involving Harlan County Sheriff Marvin Lipfird. No decision was rendered.
Lipfird testified during the hearing that he didn't know purchasing a vehicle from a worker's spouse was a possible ethics violation. He said he had no ethics training before the purchase was made.
Harlan County Judge-Executive Joe Grieshop filed the complaint after a state audit noted the purchase.
It was unclear when the committee would issue a ruling.
