|Trial date set in Councilwoman Ann Cherry case|
Hopkinsville City Council member Ann Cherry was back in Circuit Court this morning, where a trial date was set for next spring.
Ms. Cherry was indicted on one count each of tampering with public records, tampering with a witness and second degree official misconduct in August for allegedly hindering the investigation of several prowling incidents on the south side of Hopkinsville in some way.
Defense attorney Ben Fletcher and Commonwealth’s Attorney Lynn Pryor discussed a trial date with Judge John Atkins, while Ms. Cherry stood in between.
Fletcher didn’t get the summer trial date he requested, as Judge Atkins set the trial for Monday, April 29th.
Ms. Cherry has represented Ward 6 on Hopkinsville City Council since 2009 and was easily re-elected to a third term earlier this month.
