An arrest warrant has been issued for a lawyer from Lexington who is charged with possessing two stolen sculptures after he missed a court hearing.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported (http://bit.ly/1bREFSf ) that 45-year-old John Scott Benton was due in Fayette District Court on Monday for a preliminary hearing. Benton pleaded not guilty last month to charges he possessed two bronze sculptures stolen from a Versailles art gallery. Each sculpture was valued at $25,000.

Fayette District Judge Joseph Bouvier issued the warrant after Benton failed to appear for the hearing.

Police recovered the sculptures at Benton's apartment last month after executing a search warrant.
