  • Animal Control employee fired

    The Oldham County Fiscal Court has officially fired an animal control officer for admitting to official misconduct, but is locked into a battle with a state agency over money due to the former employee.

    Fiscal Court officially fired Animal Control officer Elmer "Jim" Nichter on Aug. 20.  Nichter was arrested on May 15 for forgery, official misconduct and theft relating to a missing dog case. Earlier this month, Nichter pled guilty in court to official misconduct. This admission prompted Judge-Executive David Voegele to let him go.
