Kelsey Ketron Randolph’s lawyer said Monday afternoon that he has not reached an agreement with prosecutors on 70 criminal charges at this time, despite a media report.
Attorney Trey Harwell said, “I can only provide limited information at this point. Despite this news story and although the Court set a hearing for February 24, it does not say anything about a settlement. There is no official agreement in place right now. It would be inappropriate for me to say anything further at this time.”
Bruce Garner, a spokesman for the Hamilton County District Attorney’s office, which is prosecuting the case, said no agreement has been reached. He said that negotiations for a settlement are taking place, but “that is not a sure thing. It could still go to trial.”
NewsChannel 5 reported Monday afternoon that Ketron Randolph’s lawyers had reached an agreement with prosecutors.
A hearing date has been pushed back several times recently and is currently set for Feb. 24, according to the Rutherford County Criminal Court Clerk’s office.
On Nov. 25, Ketron Randolph pled not guilty during an arraignment hearing.
Ketron Randolph was arrested and charged on Nov. 4 on 70 counts ranging from allegations of aggravated perjury to money laundering and impersonating a licensed insurance professional, related to depositions given in two civil lawsuits as well as her former role as her father’s campaign treasurer. Three counts are against the family’s insurance business, officials said during the arraignment.
Her father is Rutherford County Mayor Bill Ketron, a former state senator and owner of Universal International Insurance Agency Inc.
