LOUISVILLE, Ky. The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear the case of former Clay County Circuit Judge R. Cletus Maricle and others on Jan. 25 in Cincinnati.

Maricle is serving more than 26 years in federal prison for his role in a conspiracy to gain power and control politics in an eastern Kentucky county.

Former Clay County School Superintendent Douglas C. Adams is serving a 293-month sentence and one-time county clerk Freddy Thompson is serving a 150-month sentence.

The men were part of a group of eight officials convicted in March of multiple charges, including racketeering, money laundering and voter fraud stemming from the 2002, 2004 and 2006 elections.

A three-judge panel will consider whether to overturn part or all of the convictions and sentences for the men.

They are right where they need to be in prison. They did the crime now they need to do the time. These people are no better than any one else to set in prison. I hope they have to stay every day that they got. It is sicken to think what all these crooks have done to Clay Co. and the people in it. YOU CROOKS SET IN PRISON AND DO YOUR TIME BECAUSE YOU SURE DID THE CRIMES.

these ppl did do wrong and they are being punished, but they did not deserve the amount of time that they got. look at the superintendent in breathitt county, I think he only got 2-3 years. nothing compared to what these gentleman got.

I 100% agree these men have paid for their crimes let them come home, the amount of time they got was more than most people get for killing someone. It's just not right... they're in my prayers.

What is the matter with you people have you ever set down and though of how many years they have crooked in Clay Co. and took off the poor people. I THINK YOU PEOPLE HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS. If they were not guilty they would not be in prison. Why would any one stick up for the crooks that has destroyed the lives of families and taking from their county? They deserive every day they got and should have to pay the county for every thing they took from it. If you were not a snake or a crook on Court House Hill and went to court you were in some deep trouble specialy if you were a poor person. LET THEM PAY.

How did they take from the poor people? How did they distroy families? They gave the poor people money for their votes. I use to work at the precients and people would come and wait till almost 6:00 before they voted to see how much money they would get. So get real. The only families that have been distroyed are their families.

Why don't you call the FBI and explain all that To them, R Cletus Miracel shot and killed a man in the 70's while he was in a voting booth and has been a gangster ever sence, he didn't do anytime over that? Controlled the drugs sold in 3 counties for many years sence the mid -late 80's they didn't even get him on any of that stuff. If you paid him you did not do time in Clay Leslie or Jackson county. There's lots of people that would love to tell the truth to the Feds about him if they only knew who to talk to just everybody that has had a murder charge in court or a drug charge and got off what about jury tampering or paid off they will be a lot more go down if he gets out because he will rat on a lot. Richie Farmer will be next in line to do some time and many more that's not been mention yet

Some of the people who post on Topix are the most small-minded, hypocritical, sanctimonious & mean-spirited individuals to ever draw breath. I think these people who post hateful, cruel rumors and slander must have very sad lives, because often we see in others what we see(and dislike) in ourselves.
Why be so judgmental? I sincerely hope that all of of the Clay 8 get to come home; Keta0532 was correct to say that the only families destroyed were their own families.
Most families have had some one in jail or prison, if not a brother or sister at least a cousin.
Would you want someone you cared about locked up for years over a non-violent crime? Its easy to be spiteful when you are anonymous.
