NICHOLASVILLE — An assistant county attorney who was charged with driving under the influence in July has submitted her resignation.
Jackie Horn-Holt, 38, of Wilmore will resign from the county attorney's office on Aug. 15. Her resignation was accepted by Jessamine County Fiscal Court this week, County Attorney Brian Goettl said.
Goettl had no comment when asked if he had sought the resignation. Horn-Holt directed the juvenile justice division of the county attorney's office but would sometimes handle district court cases, including DUIs.
Horn-Holt was arrested July 19 after a Wilmore police officer saw a Toyota speeding on U.S. 68, according to a report filed in Jessamine District Court.

She failed sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.119, according to court documents. The legal limit is 0.08.
Horn-Holt is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Jessamine District Court. A special judge and special prosecutor will handle the case. The judge is Earl-Ray Neal, who presides over cases in Madison and Clark counties, and the prosecutor is Anderson County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis.
Goettl said other members of his staff will pick up the work that Horn-Holt did.
