HINDMAN, Ky.(WYMT)- The appeals process continues for one local county official.

Knott County Judge Executive Randy Tthompson and three others were convicted in 2008 on charges of buying votes prior to the November 2006 election.

They allegedly allowed county blacktop and gravel to be applied to private drives in exchange for votes.

Attorneys for Thompson and two others have filed requests to overturn the recent ruling that upholds those convictions

Duh....that is MY business....and everyone else's too.And I'll poke my nose wherever I want to. Thompson is a sorry excuse for a judge.He needs to just put on his big girl panties and take his punishment.

They're just trying to draw it out as long as possible and hoping it goes away. I just don't think it's going to go away.

How anyone can argue Randy Thompson is "a sorry judge" is beyond me. It would be very interesting to see a debate concerning the matter. Im willing to bet that team Thompson would win. These extreme people that head the "We hate Randy Thompson" campaign are an utter embarassment to themselves as well as their community, neighbors, and friends.

In this country you can do anything and stay out of jail if you have the money. One thing about the appeals process. If you appeal a conviction and lose you serve the FULL term of the conviction and pay the full amount of the fine. That can be more than the judge gave you. So you really are taking a bad chance on appealing somthing. Google it.

How many times do you people (all 6 or 7 of you)have to be told, "the men aren't going anywhere". Thompson will be your county judge for many years.

Next election, Thompson by a landslide. Republicans own this county.

Sounds to me like somebodys' ego talking Hal.

If "these Men" walk out of this there'll be more than 6 or 7 questioning why, and who made the decision. Sounds like you're trying to say this is another one of those "done deals" we keep hearing about. People are watching what's going on in S.E. Kentucky, and Knott County is well known as a corrupt place. So who's gonna put their self in a position to let some liars and thiefs go free with no punishment.

Their pull hasn't helped them thus far. I doubt this goes anywhere and prison will get them soon.

Just look at our budget if you don't think he is sorry it might change your mind. He built all of this tourism and little to show for it and it doesn't sustain itself financially. I think the water projects was great. But a vote buyer is not a good man you must like how he was ready to sign our severence money over to Upike is all I can think.
