Group Working for Pardon
By Angela Hatton
Cadiz, KY – A group is trying to reverse a guilty ruling issued by the Trigg County District Court. A jury convicted 79-year-old Jay Latham of disorderly conduct and recommended a 250-dollar fine. Now the Friends of Jay Latham have established a web site and are planning a campaign to get Kentucky's governor to pardon Latham. Police arrested Latham last year when he tried to enter a float with democratic signs in the Trigg County Ham Festival Parade. Latham claims the arrest was politically motivated but officers say Latham got loud and out of control when asked to leave.
