Suspension due to allegations of misconduct

Ballotpedia.org – In December 2019, the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission filed allegations that Gentry had committed misconduct on nine different counts. Gentry denied the allegations in her response.

On January 6, 2020, the Judicial Conduct Commission suspended Gentry without pay pending investigation of the charges.

In February 2020, the Kentucky General Assembly formed a committee to investigate a possible case for impeaching Gentry on the grounds of her alleged misconduct.

Gentry was originally scheduled to appear in court on April 20, 2020, but the hearing was postponed to August 10 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to restrictions on legislative activity during the pandemic, the Kentucky General Assembly was unable to complete its impeachment investigation and dissolved at the end of the legislative session on April 15, 2020. Source.
