LEXINGTON, Ky.(WKYT)- The daughter of an elected Kentucky official is facing charges after, police say, she sold drugs on the UK campus.

UK Police arrested Rachel Siegelman yesterday and charged her with trafficking.

We've learned Siegelman is the daughter of Versailles mayor, Fred Siegelman.

University of Kentucky Police began the investigation about a week and a half ago.

They say they received a tip about people selling drugs on campus.

We're told the same investigation led them to James Johnson. He was arrested on Tuesday and charged with trafficking and possesion of a controlled substance.

A third person, Lauren Tack, was cited with possesion of marijuana and released.

We called mayor Siegelman's office. We were told he had no comment and no further questions were answered

Siegelman will make her first court appearance at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Petition Letter
I just signed the following petition addressed to: The Versailles Ky city council..

----------
Get rid of Mayor Fred Siegelman and save our public workers!!

This man has done more to hurt the people of Versailles, and to deny honest citizens their rights, than any one else. He does not allow any city growth. Makes it difficult for any new business to come to Versailles. Allows our malls to fall apart. We need recreation here! Such as a bowling Alley and Movie Theater. Without new business there are no new jobs. Without jobs people cannot purchase homes and there is no city growth. Just look around you.. Versailles is becoming an eye sore. Buildings are fallen apart. Roads and parking lots are full of pot holes. Let's face it. This town is fallen apart and so is it's Mayor. Feb 26, 2012 he was arrested for driving under the influence. We need a Mayor that cares about our public workers, keeping jobs in Versailles, and creating new jobs by allowing new business, growth and development.
----------

Sincerely,

Can't believe people sometimes! This is so uncalled for. Why does this one individual feel the need to post on Topix unless he/she has a personal problem with this family? Everyone, well almost everyone, watches their local news and are aware of this story. Don't need this..... but hey, if it makes you happy,, then you no doubt have some issues of your own you need to deal with. Mayor Fred, hang in there, hope you get a good laugh, I did!!!

Sure he was laughing hard when he posted her bail. One thing that makes this topix post different is that it is a news story, not just a smear campaign.

She is a young lady. Young people make mistakes and she just happens to be related to some one with a little bit of name recognition locally. I wish people would just ignore it. If my daughter did the same thing it wouldn't warrant press coverage. I hope she can turn it around.

The daughter of a central Kentucky mayor was arrested in Lexington on drug charges Wednesday.

Rachel Siegelman, 19, is the daughter of Versailles mayor Fred Siegelman.

Police say she was arrested just before noon for selling marijuana and LSD on UK's Lexington campus.

The arrest was part of a week-long sting UK police had set up.

Siegelman was in court via a live video stream from the Fayette County Jail Thursday.

She pleaded not guilty, and was released on bail to her parents with the condition that she'd be under constant surveillance.

This Siegelman was not the first to be in trouble with the law--the mayor himself pleaded guilty to DUI charges in February.

The point is - The Mayor and his family should improve the City, not contribute to increasing the crime rate in the town he governs.

yeah and so should more people that live in this town help keep the crime rate down and besides that I did not say he has a perfect family and the only reason every one makes a big deal out of what him and his family does is because of him being mayor. I understand what you are saying so point taking!
