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.

Ms. Cherry has represented Ward 6 on Hopkinsville City Council since 2009 and was easily re-elected to a third term earlier this month.
