LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A judge has denied embattled Metro Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin's efforts to delay her trial on ethics charges.
Shanklin asked for the delay earlier this week, saying her appeal of a separate, city ethics commission decision should be decided first.
She's accused of mishandling city money for an upholstery program that records show benefited her family. She's also accused of employing her grandson while he had outstanding warrants, and allegedly taking city money for a neighborhood association she chaired.
The Metro Council has already denied Shanklin's request for a continuance once before.
Shanklin's trial is scheduled to start on July 23.
