Ex-Sheriff Sentenced...Again

Ex-Sheriff Sentenced...Again

A former Whitley County sheriff faces 17 years on state charges related to drugs.
Lawrence Hodge, the former sheriff of Whitley County, was sentenced to more prison time, though his prison stay will be the same.

Hodge already faces a federal sentence of more than 15 years, after admitting to dealing drugs and stealing money. Thursday, a court sentenced him to 17 years on state charges. He was also ordered to pay $375,000.

The sentences will run concurrently, so he will not spend any more time behind bars.

Hodge is in prison in Ohio.
