Judge blasts sheriff for tooting own horn

        COVINGTON — A judge told Kenton County Sheriff Chuck Korzenborn Mondaythat perhaps he should pay more attention to his office and less attention to the bugle he plays at memorial functions.

        Kenton County Circuit Judge Steve Jaeger ordered Mr. Korzenborn to appear in court and explain why a prisoner scheduled to appear before the judge last week failed to show up. The prisoner was not transported from the Boone County Jail to Kenton County by sheriff's deputies.

        Kenton County Chief Deputy Ron Washington said the prisoner's transport papers were misplaced.

        “We do a mass amount of transportations, and in this case the deputy did not see the order because apparently it become mixed with other papers,” he said.

        Deputy Washington said the sheriff's department now will “red flag” prisoner transport orders so they cannot be missed.

        The sheriff plays the bugle at functions such as Memorial Day ceremonies and the Northern Kentucky police memorial. He played for years before becoming sheriff.

        Judge Jaeger was not available for comment.
