A former Kentucky sheriff has pleaded guilty in state court to charges including abuse of public trust and tampering with evidence.
Hodge is already serving time on federal charges after pleading guilty to conspiracies to commit extortion, distribute drugs and launder money.
After Hodge entered the pleas last week, Judge David A. Tapp sentenced him to 17 years, to be served concurrently with his federal sentence.
