KY Judge-Executive Arrested on Theft Charges

June 8, 2013

Harlan County Judge-Executive Joe Grieshop has been arrested on burglary, theft and official misconduct charges.

[Sheriff Marvin J.] Lipfird said the investigation is continuing and a preliminary hearing will be held. The sheriff said other people may also be charged.
Grieshop was not indicted but arrested on a warrant that Lipfird obtained in December. He said he didn’t arrest Grieshop immediately because other agencies advised him to wait.
Grieshop is charged in the warrant with third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking over $10,000, 10 counts of retaliating against a participant in a legal process and one count of first-degree official misconduct.
