Trial of Ex-Bromley Mayor Continued to July

The trial of former Bromley Mayor Donnie Jobe was continued until July.

Donnie Jobe, indicted on multiple charges by a Kenton County grand jury in January, was expected to appear in Kenton County Circuit Court last Monday.

Instead, Jobe found a new attorney who needs time to examine the evidence, Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders told The River City News.

Jobe was indicted on charges of fraudulent use of a credit card, theft by failure to make required disposition, theft by deception, four counts of tampering with public record, tampering with physical evidence, and abuse of public trust.

Jobe, who was also chief of the Bromley Fire Department while serving as mayor, resigned as mayor in September of 2017 and stepped down as fire chief after his arrest.

Earlier this month, the Bromley city council voted to end its contract with the Bromley Fire Department, opting instead to contract with the City of Ludlow for fire and EMS service, ending the Bromley department.
