LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has lashed out at protesting teachers and ridiculed judges during a tumultuous term spent steering Kentucky on a conservative course while struggling to fix pension problems.

Hoskins was charged with promoting child trafficking. He and the others were charged with using electronic devices to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities.

SANDY HOOK, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky state investigator says state prison officials in Elliott County didn't properly investigate allegations that a prison supervisor was sexually harassing guards. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Kentucky Personnel Board released a report on the probes last week. It says a Little Sandy Correctional Complex staffer tasked with investigating the claims wasn't trained for such investigations, didn't interview potential witnesses and asked limited questions. The women later sued.
