Trial of Ex-Bromley Mayor Continued Again

A trial that was originally slated to begin in April, and that was then continued to July, and that was then continued to October 2, was continued again this week.

Attorneys representing for Bromley Mayor and Fire Chief Donnie Jobe want more time to bring in forensic accountants, Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders told The River City News.

Donnie Jobe, indicted on multiple charges by a Kenton County grand jury in January, previously saw his case continued when he hired a new attorney who needed more time to examine evidence.

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 though he continued to serve as fire chief until after his arrest.

Leading up to the arrest, the Bromley city building was raided by law enforcement officers who seized computers and documents. Jobe continued to serve as mayor and fire chief during the lengthy investigation until he was arrested.
