State DUI Instructor Indicted on Charges He Falsified Program Completion Forms
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the indictment of a certified instructor in Kentucky's Alcohol Related Offenders Program (AROP) on charges he falsified public records. A Franklin County grand jury yesterday indicted 39-year-old Timothy Monhollen of Lexington on three counts of tampering with public records for allegedly falsifying entries in DUI Program Completion Forms. Monhollen is a certified DUI assessor and DUI instructor in Boyle, Fayette, Jessamine, Lincoln and Mercer counties.
The charges follow an investigation by Attorney General Conway's Department of Criminal Investigations. The case was referred to the Attorney General's Office by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in August of 2010. As per a criminal summons, Monhollen is scheduled to appear in Franklin Circuit Court on December 2, 2011 at 9:00 a.m.
The Cabinet for Health and Family Services certified Monhollen as an AROP DUI instructor in 2005 and as an AROP DUI Assessor in 2007.
The charges against Monhollen are Class D felonies that carry a possible sentence of between one and five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Prosecution of this case is being handled by the Attorney General's Office of Special Prosecutions.
A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
