A county employee charged with involvement in his 17-year-old daughter’s marijuana use accepted a plea agreement Friday which includes two years’ probation, random drug tests and participation in a drug treatment program. Adam Reinhardt, a GIS programming specialist and former Oldham County dispatcher, was indicted in November for unlawful transaction with a minor. According to the indictment, between June 1 and Oct. 11, Reinhardt, 43, committed a class D felony when he knowingly induced, assisted or caused a minor – his 17-year-old daughter – to engage in marijuana use. He pleaded not guilty to the charge Jan. 3. As part of a plea agreement offered by the Commonwealth Attorney’s office last week, Reinhardt’s charge was amended from a felony to a misdemeanor. He pleaded guilty on Friday. Reinhardt is required to complete a drug treatment program, submit to random drug and alcohol tests, maintain employment and pay a $500 fine and $150 in court costs. He will be supervised by the Department of Probation and Parole. His 12-month sentence will be diverted two years. Reinhardt started working at Oldham County Dispatch nine years ago. He was transferred to Oldham County Planning and Zoning to work with the GIS computer system in October.
