Franklin District Judge Guy Hart says Fletcher should appear in court to answer to the charges as other misdemeanor defendants do. Governor Fletcher was indicted on 3 misdemeanor charges on Thursday, which deal with violating state hiring laws. State Speaker Jody Richards calls the indictments a sad day for Kentucky. Fletcher calls it politically charged. Fletcher's arraignment is set for June 7th. Judge Hart says the Governor's case may not move quickly and could possibly continue into next year, when Fletcher is expected to be on the ballot for re-election.
