KENTON CO. -- A Villa Hills woman accused of violating the terms of her probation appeared in Kenton Circuit Court Friday. (Backstory)
Jeni Lee Dinkel was kicked out of a court-ordered sex offender treatment program for violations that include refusing to take a polygraph test, according to prosecutors.
She has appealed that decision, and results are expected next week.
At Friday's hearing, Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett denied a motion by Dinkel's lawyer Robert Lotz for access to Dinkel's file kept by the Kentucky Division of Probation and Parole. Bartlett said those documents would be made available before the hearing on Dinkel's probation revocation, set for 9:30 a.m. Friday.
Dinkel's probation officer and the director of the sex offender treatment program have been subpoenaed to testify.
In May, Dinkel pleaded guilty to one count of third-degree rape for having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy. Last fall, she served 60 days of a five-year jail sentence.
