A former Breathitt County superintendent pleaded guilty to vote buying in federal court Tuesday.

Arch Turner, 66, admitted in court that he gave money to people during the spring of 2010 to buy votes for candidates during the May 2010 election.

Turner's plea agreement stated that he also accepted money to be used for vote buying.

The former superintendent is the 11th person to have admitted to--or be convicted of--vote buying-related charges stemming from Breathitt County's May 2010 primary elections.

Turner is scheduled to appear in court for sentencing October 24th. He faces up to five years in prison.

He was released from custody, but will be under electronic monitoring in Fayette County until he's sentenced.
