Female judge punished for having group sex in courthouse

A female judge has been suspended with pay, following accusations that she allegedly had an orgy at a courthouse, among other indiscretions.

Per a recent report by Fox News, 38-year-old Kentucky family court judge Dawn Gentry is currently being investigated over a total of nine ethics violations, which include her having sexual relationships with multiple employees while in the office, letting her staffers drink at work, and allegedly giving preferential treatment to lawyers who slept with her.

Take a look at this news report on the investigation below:

According to recently-released court documents, Gentry also faces disciplinary action for falsifying timesheets, delaying hearings for or dismissing attorneys who did not support her bid for Kenton County Family Court judge. She has also been accused of coercing staffers to contribute to her campaign while serving as a judge.

Not only that, but she has been accused of sleeping with secretary Laura Aubrey and employee Stephen Penrose while in a courthouse office during work hours, as well as making unwanted sexual advances towards employee Katherine Schulz.

The Judicial Conduct Commission's dossier on Gentry states: "While serving as Family Court Judge for Kenton County—in particular, since being elected to that position in November 2018—you have engaged in a pattern of conduct that constitutes misconduct in office and violates the Code of Judicial Conduct."

It continues: "You utilized court staff to work on your campaign during work hours. This conduct included, but is not necessarily limited to, having your staff attorney place and deliver campaign signs and having your case management specialist/mediator write thank-you notes for the campaign and publicly hold a campaign sign on Election Day. You also took steps to conceal this conduct."

Judge Gentry has denied all charges against herself and claims she is innocent of any professional or ethical wrongdoing.
