A family court judge in Kentucky was temporarily suspended without pay after she was accused of misconduct, including a threesome in the courthouse, according to NBC.
Judge Dawn Gentry, a family court judge in the northern 16th Judicial District of Kentucky, was charged by the State Judicial Conduct Committee for multiple counts of misconduct in November 2019.
She denies all of the accusations.
Earlier this week, pending a final decision in the case, she was put on temporary paid suspension.
Stephen Ryan, Gentry’s lawyer, told NBC News on Wednesday that, in court proceedings, witnesses attested to Gentry’s ability as a judge, arguing that she was fit to remain on the bench.
Ryan said that he expects the temporary suspension to last one to two months, and that a hearing should be set for her case in the near future.
