HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police have charged the police chief in Hodgenville with official misconduct and hindering prosecution.

A statement from the KSP post in Bowling Green says the charges were filed Friday in a summons against Steven Johnson, who will have a court date in July.

The charges come amid an investigation of former Hodgenville Mayor Terry L. Cruse and City Clerk MaDonna Hornback, who have been indicted on charges of theft and abusing public trust. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Hodgenville Mayor Kenny Devore told The News-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/1nWZRpT) that the charges won’t immediately change Johnson’s status as police chief. He said it was common knowledge that police might file charges against Johnson.
