Everyone has known for years that Livy Leavell was stealing from the jail. Now that they have proof in hand, he's not been locked up, but is running for another term as sheriff.
He has made this county look like a joke! And i'm sure there some idiots that will vote for this crook.

Seems Mr. Leavell has finally got someone running against him that he can't threaten with job termination!!!! Best of luck, MR. INMAN!!!!He can't take your job like he did Dennis Cunningham when he chose to run against him in the last election. This county needs some new faces and honest police.

Christian Co. Sheriff Faces Money Mishandling Allegations

Posted: Oct 20, 2010 1:58 PM CDT



Kentucky Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor said the results of the audit would likely be taken before a grand jury by the end of the year.
by Brent Frazier
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky.– The incumbent candidate,(Livy Leavell Jr.) for Christian County Sheriff faces serious allegations of mishandling money from his opponent. The findings of a three-year audit may be referred to a grand jury.
At a political debate Tuesday evening, challenger Chuck Inman, a veteran detective with the Hopkinsville Police Department, cited specific infractions from a 2007 audit when current Sheriff Livy Leavell Jr. was administrator of the county's detention center.
"He failed to pay $25,000 in taxes, nearly $40,000 are missing,$18,000 are misappropriated, mishandled," Inman told the crowd inside Hopkinsville's Bradford Square Mall. "(Leavell) hid hundreds of thousands of dollars from fiscal court, the county clerk, failed to disclose it to the audit and finance, and hid it from the taxpayers of Christian County."
"There are multiple violations of law, both misdemeanor and felony level. But worse than that, there's abuse of public trust," said Inman.
Sheriff Leavell refused to offer a rebuttal or response of any kind to Inman's allegations.
"My campaign is based on proven leadership and accomplishments," the sheriff told the crowd of voters. "People are sick and tired of seeing campaign ads which only attack your opponent by slinging mud. My opponent has chosen this tactic, and he will have to enjoy the mud pit by himself in this campaign. I will not be joining him."
Leavell is wrapping up the end of his first, four-year term as sheriff. Prior to that, he was in charge of overseeing operations at the county jail – a position he held for nearly 30 years.
At the conclusion of the debate, Leavell told NewsChannel 5 it would be inappropriate for him to comment or respond to Inman's accusations, given that this is an ongoing investigation.
Kentucky Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor said the results of the audit would likely be taken before a grand jury by the end of the year.
(note)
In the recent past Mr. Leavell has been named in several Federal Lawsuit cases in the United States District Courts of Western Kentucky. Complaints range from violations of civil rights to wrongful death suits, and others involving Jail Staff and Jail inmates.
