THE RIVER CITY NEWS MORE COVINGTON NEWS THAN ANY OTHER SOURCE
The following people are among a long list from this week's activity in Kenton County Circuit Court. Some are going to prison while others are on probation or in the felony diversion program. A few more are still wanted for failing to appear in court:
The most high-profile sentencing of the week belongs to Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson:
On 3/1/12 Simpson pled guilty to Prohibited Acts Related to a Controlled Substance. Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders recommended a sentence of 3 years probated for 3 years, serve 60 days in the county jail. On 4/5/12 Simpson was sentenced to 3 years probated for 3 years, serve 15 days in the county jail.|
There are more at the link below with an explanation of charges and recommended sentences from Rob Sanders's Commonwealth Attorney's office. Some have been sent away, some are awaiting sentencing, and others will get probation. Whatever they end up with, let's hope as a community that they return healthy and rehabilitated, otherwise the cycle continues.
