By Jacque Day
Christian County – A former Cadiz city attorney and Trigg County attorney sought on fraud charges has turned himself in. Hopkinsville Police arrested 65-year-old Kenneth Kennedy of Clarksville, Tennessee after he turned up at the Christian County Justice Center late afternoon Friday. The Commonwealth of Kentucky issued the warrant on Kennedy in June. He is charged with 15 felony theft counts in connection with a scam to defraud at least 18 Kentucky residents out of more than $516,000. Kennedy is the fourth person taken into custody in relation to the scam. His wife Sheila Kennedy and a Hopkinsville couple are also charged in the scam. Kenneth is being held at the Christian County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
