Hearing Set for Mingo Judge
After the pre-trial hearing was cancelled earlier in the week, a new one has been set for Mingo Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury. The judge was indicted last month on federal charges of conspiring to violate the constitutional rights of his former secretary's husband. With no pending motions, a pre-trial hearing this week was cancelled, but a new one has been set for next Thursday, September 26th. Federal prosecutors accuse Thornsbury of plotting to plant drugs on the husband of his secretary, after she broke off an affair with him.
