State DUI Instructor Pleads Guilty to Falsifying DUI Program Completion Forms
Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the guilty plea of a certified instructor in Kentucky's Alcohol Related Offenders Program (AROP) on charges he falsified public records. Under a plea agreement, 40-year-old Timothy Monhollen of Lexington pled guilty to three counts of tampering with public records, a Class D felony.
The charges against Monhollen follow an investigation by Attorney General Conway's Department of Criminal Investigations. The case was referred to General Conway's Office by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in August 2010.
A Franklin County grand jury indicted Monhollen, a certified DUI instructor in Boyle, Fayette, Jessamine, Lincoln and Mercer counties, in October 2011 on three counts of tampering with public records for falsifying entries in DUI Program Completion Forms.
The plea agreement calls for a two year sentence on each of the three counts to run consecutively for an aggregate six-year sentence. Monhollen will be placed in a pre-trial diversion program for a period of five years, during which time he will be supervised by a probation officer, undergo a mental health, drug and alcohol assessment and comply with any treatment indicated. Additionally, he will not be allowed to work in Kentucky in any capacity related to DUI or domestic violence offenders and will be prohibited from reapplying for any DUI or domestic violence certification in Kentucky.
Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd will formally sentence Monhollen at 9:00 a.m. on November 16, 2012.
