A man running for magistrate in Letcher County was arrested Saturday.
Emory “Fudge” Mullins was charged with one count of third-degree criminal trespassing and one count of harassment.
According to a criminal complaint document, Mullins continually drove back and forth by someone’s home June 2. He also allegedly often drove into that person’s business’ parking lot, Carty Funeral Home in Jenkins, during business hours.
The document states he had no legal reason to be on or near that person’s property.
Officials say while at the funeral home, Mullins “made statements about the victim’s minor child”.
Mullins was served February 6 with a notice to not be on or around the funeral home or the owner’s home.
Neon Police arrested Mullins and took him to the Letcher County Detention Center, where he was later released on a bond.
Mullins won the Letcher County Democratic District 3 Magistrate race in this year’s primary election.
