The Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission is investigating nine misconduct charges against Gentry, accusing her of using sex, campaign contributions and retaliation as tools in her judgeship. Gentry has denied the allegations.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported the postponement came after Gentry’s attorneys argued in court documents that a delay was needed because the pandemic has made it difficult to collect interviews and information for the hearing. A new date wasn’t immediately set.
