Ethics commission unanimously votes to re-hear John Arnold case

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Legislative Ethics Commission has unanimously voted to re-hear the ethics case against John Arnold.

In April, the Commission heard testimony from three Capitol staffers who say Arnold inappropriately grabbed, groped and verbally harassed them over a period of three years.

His defense attorney claimed Arnold suffered from dementia.

At the time, he was found guilty, but the Commission failed to get the five votes needed to convict Arnold of ethics violations because three of the eight commissioners were absent from the meeting and a fourth position is vacant.

Today's decision means the Commission can vote again.
