A local judge stands accused of having sex and alcohol in the courthouse, coercing staff, taking revenge that affected cases, and more.
An anonymous person filed the complaint about Judge Dawn Gentry, a family court judge in Kenton County, to the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission on Nov. 18. The accusations include:

Coercing staff to help her with her campaign.
Retaliating against those who did not support her.
