On September 19, 2011, the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission issued its ruling in the ethics trial of Harlan Judge Russell D. Alred.  Attorneys Jeff Mando and Louis Kelly prosecuted the charges against Judge Alred on behalf of the Commission.  The Commission found Judge Alred guilty on 9 counts of judicial misconduct and ordered him removed from the bench.  They found that he “…had improper involvement in cases, failed to dispose of cases fairly, used his office to advance personal interests and misrepresented his actions.” Click here to read the Lexington Herald Leader’s story on this decision.
