FRANKFORT — Attorney General Jack Conway released several documents Tuesday that shed no new light on a decade-old investigation of a woman's allegations that Senate President David Williams sexually abused her while representing her in a criminal case.
Williams has always denied the allegations, and the attorney general's office closed the case in April 2008 after finding no wrongdoing by Williams.
Last month, Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate ordered the release of some of the records from the 2002 investigation at the request of the Lexington Herald-Leader and The Courier-Journal. He kept closed a summary of an interview with the woman.
State media reported in 2002 that Lori Radford Sandlin, a former client of Williams and a state prisoner, alleged that Williams had asked for sexual favors in exchange for legal representation.
