Family court judge has sex in courthouse, solicits staff for threesomes: Docs

An oversight committee found on Monday that a Kentucky judge not only had sex with staff at the courthouse, but she also forced attorneys to support her election and retaliated against one of them for not donating the maximum amount.

The six-member Judicial Conduct Commission issued nine counts against Kenton County family court Judge Dawn Gentry, who they wrote had a “pattern” of misconduct. The panel is now tasked with handing down a punishment, which ranges from formal reprimand to removing Gentry from office.

The commission’s investigation began on November 18. Their 47-page report also accused Gentry of offering employment for donations to her campaign, fabricated time sheets, forced staff to help with her campaign, and allowing employees to drink alcohol in the courthouse.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported allegations that Gentry and her case specialist, Stephen Penrose, had a threesome with her secretary. Gentry was also accused of soliciting someone who worked on her panel to help abused children to have a threesome with her and Penrose.

Gentry denied all nine counts against her in a written response. A date for her disciplinary hearing is pending.
