Judge Rejects Ketron's Request to Dismiss Fraud Case

Administrative Judge Phillip R. Hilliard has rejected Kelsey Ketron's request to dismiss a fraud case against her that alleges she acted as an unlicensed insurance agent, the Daily News Journal reports. Ketron, who is the daughter of Rutherford County mayor Bill Ketron, also faces complaints of impersonating a licensed professional and committing theft while serving as a vice president of her father’s insurance company. She has since resigned from that position. Ketron’s attorney Trey Harwell said the decision does not speak to the merit of the case and that “The court seems to recognize this, in its ruling, by stating that we raised 'legitimate arguments about possible shortcomings.”
