Judge In Connection To Disability Fraud Case Pleads Guilty

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (EKB) - A former judge charged with accepting bribes from a former disability attorney pleaded guilty in federal court.

Judge David Daughetry admitted to accepting bribes from former attorney Eric C. Conn in connection with disability cases

Court records reveal the illicit relationship between the two men began in 2004, when Daugherty asked Conn for a $5000 loan. The following month, Conn told the judge that instead of repaying the loan, he could instead begin paying the judge a set amount for every favorable ruling for one of Conn's clients.

Thus, the Social Security Administration contends that the deal turned into a cyclical relationship between the attorney, judge and Doctor Bradley Adkins who is also charged in the case.

Conn pleaded guilty to paying Daugherty an average of $8000 a month -- which was more than the salary he received as judge. The relationship continued until 2011, netting daugherty $609,000 in return for at least 31,000 favorable decisions. Daughterty will be sentenced August 25. He faces two years for each of the charges.

Conn pleaded guilty to theft and bribery charges in March. he will be sentenced July 14.

The disability benefits of over 900 Eastern Kentucky residents represented by Conn were frozen pending a review by the Social Security Administration.
