Kentucky to cease driver’s license renewal mailer; will save state $250,000 annually 

Kentucky’s Division of Driver Licensing will save the state an estimated $250,000 a year thanks to its decision to stop mailing out license renewal reminder cards.

The decision was announced Thursday and will affect the state’s 3.6 million license holders, said Naitore Djigbenou, the deputy executive director for Kentucky’s Transportation Cabinet.

“The move to discontinue the expiration reminder cards is rooted in a desire to steward our Road Fund dollars responsibly,” Djigbenou said. “This courtesy came at an expense. In the future, we will offer text and email reminders to motorists who voluntarily provide that information.”

Drivers have to renew their licenses every four years. The Division of Driver Licensing mails reminder cards to about 900,000 Kentucky drivers each year. The $250,000 will go towards building roads and bridges, Djigbenou said.

“We are in a new administration and under new leadership that is closely examining spending,” she said.

Magoffin teen charged with rape of 13-year-old

Brandon WilliamsA Magoffin County teen was arrested on Saturday and charged with rape and sodomy after admitting to engaging in sexual contact with a 13-year-old female. 

Kentucky State Police Trooper Hale noted in the arrest citation that he received a call from the girl's legal guardian at approximately 7:20 a.m. on Saturday, August 27, stating that Brandon Williams, 18, of Salyersville, was located inside the residence where the girl lives. 

When Trooper Hale arrived, he interviewed Williams, who admitted to meeting the 13-year-old outside at approximately 2:30 a.m., at which time he entered the home. He admitted to engaging in oral sex twice and intercourse, according to the citation.

The victim told law enforcement that it was consensual sex, according to the police report. She was sent to Highlands Regional Medical Center for a sexual assault evidence collection kit. 

According to KRS 510.020, a person is deemed incapable of consent when he or she is less than 16 years old. 

Williams is currently charged with second degree rape (no force) and two counts of second degree sodomy, all classified as Class C felonies. Each charge carries a potential penalty of 5 to 10 years.

At press time, Williams is currently housed at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Sept. 1, 2016) – Nearly two thirds of Kentuckians who participated in a mock election at the Kentucky State Fair over the last two weeks support Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' plan to offer early voting in the Commonwealth's elections.

"Results from our State Fair polls confirm what we regularly hear from Kentucky voters – that they are more than ready for the opportunity to cast their ballots early," said Grimes. "Unfortunately, the Kentucky Senate did not act on our legislation that would give Kentuckians that opportunity, which passed the House with bipartisan support earlier this year. We will be backing that bill again, and it's time that it's made law."

Sixty-five percent of the voters who participated in the Secretary of State's mock election at the office's State Fair booth said they support allowing all eligible Kentucky voters to cast absentee ballots in-person without an excuse before Election Day.

Grimes backed early voting legislation, House Bill 290, before the General Assembly earlier this year.  The legislation carried the endorsement of Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett (R) who joined Grimes to speak before a House committee on the bill. He told lawmakers that his state sees tremendous success with its early voting program.

"I encourage all Kentuckians who support early voting to contact their county clerks and ask them to support our plan," said Grimes. "They should also call or email their state legislators and tell them that it's time to pass this important election reform."
