LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- An eastern Kentucky school superintendent charged with conspiracy to buy votes in the 2010 election has been jailed after prosecutors say he violated conditions of his bond.
Prosecutors told WYMT-TV that 65-year-old Arch Turner of Booneville was taken into custody Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Lexington after a court appearance.
Turner is superintendent of the Breathitt County School system.
A grand jury in March also charged Turner with obstruction of justice.
Court records say he met with a co-defendant to discuss strategy and testimony at trial. Turner is being held at the Fayette County Detention Center. His trial is set for July 30 in Lexington.
