The state attorney general's office has decided there's not enough evidence to bring charges against a former official in Gov. Steve Beshear's administration following an investigation into whether cabinet employees were targeted for campaign contributions.
Geveden attorney Guthrie True of Frankfort said he and his client are "very pleased."
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has charged Geveden with violating state government's ethics code over fundraising and is scheduled to begin hearing the case Feb. 5.
True said he doesn't believe Geveden violated the state ethics code.
