Pike County man indicted for election fraud

FRANKFORT, Ky (WYMT)- A Pike County man has been indicted on multiple felony charges of election fraud in connection with the recent statewide primary.

Keith Justice, 50, of Pikeville, was indicted by a Franklin County grand jury and charged with four counts of intimidating an election officer and one count of interfering with an election involving a precinct in Pike County on May 17th, according to a release on Tuesday by the Attorney General's office.

The case was investigated by the Attorney General's Department of Criminal Investigations following a complaint received by the Pike County clerk's office.
