Former Kentucky State Representative Sentenced for Identity Theft

On Thursday, May 24, 2018, former Kentucky State Representative Wendell Keith Hall, 58, of Pikeville, was sentenced to two years in prison for aggravated identity theft. The sentence was ordered to run consecutively to his current 84-month prison sentence he is serving for his 2015 conviction on bribery-related charges. In February 2018, pursuant to a plea agreement, Hall pleaded guilty to one count of another, six-count indictment. The aggravated identity theft offense was committed while Hall was pending trial and sentencing in the bribery case. Hall submitted fake document to certify to another company with which he had business contracts, that he had the required worker’s compensation and liability insurance coverage, forging the name of an insurance executive on the documents. Under federal law, Hall must serve 85 percent of his sentence, following by a three year probation.
