The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has charged Geveden with violating state government's ethics code over fundraising and is scheduled to begin hearing the case Feb. 5.

FRANKFORT, KY (AP) -- The state Attorney General's office has decided there's not enough evidence to bring charges against a former official in Gov. Steve Beshear's administration, following an investigation into whether cabinet employees were targeted for campaign contributions.

The Courier-Journal obtained a copy of the letter through an open records request. The letter from Attorney General Jack Conway's office to former Deputy Justice Cabinet Secretary Charles Geveden Sr.'s attorney, said Conway's office "considers the matter closed."

Geveden attorney Guthrie True of Frankfort said he and his client are "very pleased."

The Executive Branch Ethics Commission has charged Geveden with violating state government's ethics code over fundraising and is scheduled to begin hearing the case Feb. 5.

True said he doesn't believe Geveden violated the state ethics code.
