Judge Sammons Placed on 3-Year Probation

Campbell County Judge Amanda Sammons was today placed on a three-year probation by the Board of Judicial Conduct. The judge last year faced charges of official misconduct, but they were thrown out by Senior Judge Paul Summers, who found the state had failed to present enough proof for a jury to consider the case. Sammons agreed to the terms of her probation, which include having Criminal Court Judge Shayne Sexton serve as a mentor, and that she attend the General Jurisdiction Course at the National Judicial College at her own expense.
