FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT) — A Kentucky lawmaker, Robert Goforth, who ran for governor last year has pleaded not guilty after he was accused of choking a woman with an ethernet cable.
Authorities arrested Goforth on April 21 after a woman told them he assaulted her while three children were still in the home. He is charged with strangulation, assault and terroristic threatening.
Goforth won nearly 40% of the vote among Kentucky Republicans against former Gov. Matt Bevin last year.
