Family Court Judge Dawn Gentry allegedly gave attorneys preferential treatment if they appeased her sexual demands and donated to her campaigns for re-election.

According to an investigation by the Kentucky Judicial Conduct Commission, she flirted with attorneys over Snapchat, put pressure on them to sleep with her and, in one case, asked a female attorney to join her in a threesome with her former church pastor turned lover.

On one occasion, she and the former pastor are said to have had a threesome with her secretary.

She fired the woman who had bee in the position to make room for him, it is claimed.

She then allegedly tried to involve attorneys in her sex life.

Katherine Schulz sat on a panel with Gentry that was set up to hear cases about abused children.
