Attorney: Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office ‘not accurate’ inresponse to judge’s harassment claim – WDRB 41 Louisville News, Ky. (WDRB) — An attorney for District Court Judge Stephanie Burke on Tuesday criticized the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, saying the department hasn’t been transparent in its response to his client’s repeated allegations of misconduct by a top deputy.

In an interview, Thomas E. Clay said that statements made in a WDRB News story Monday by Lt. Col Carl Yates, a spokesman for the department, “which indicate that the sheriff and members of his command staff had no knowledge of this matter are not accurate.”

And Clay called for Sheriff John Aubrey to investigate the conduct of Maj. Gerald Bates and turn over any documents the office has involving the judge’s complaints.
