FRANKFORT (AP) — The Judicial Conduct Commission has publicly reprimanded former Senior Judge Roger P. Elliott who was indicted last year in Pulaski County on a felony charge of writing a bad check.
Elliott, who served in Adair and Casey counties, had entered an Alford plea, acknowledging that the state had enough evidence to convict him. He was later indicted in Jessamine County on a felony bad check charge, but that indictment was dismissed after Elliott made restitution.
The Judicial Conduct Commission issued the public reprimand in an order released Thursday.
Elliott, who had been suspended as senior judge pending the outcome of the case, agreed to accept the reprimand and to resign.
