Former Clermont County Commissioner Archie Wilson will appear in court on Tuesday

Archie Wilson is facing sex, drug charges

COVINGTON, Ky. - Former Clermont County Commissioner Archie Wilson, who is accused of soliciting prostitution and drug trafficking, has agreed to appear in a Kenton County Courtroom next week.

Wilson's lawyer, Bob Lotz, said his client will appear before a judge at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 14.

On Thursday, Kenton County Attorney Garry Edmondson told 9 News that Wilson's lawyer said his client would surrender after undergoing unspecified treatment. Exactly what that treatment is or how long that would take has not been released. Lotz did not reveal to Edmondson where Wilson is being treated.

Wilson was charged after a lengthy criminal investigation that began with a woman identifying him as a client of hers. That woman, Amanda Lay, claims Wilson paid her and other girls for sex not only with cash but with cocaine.

Wilson resigned his office last week citing health concerns and concerns from his doctor. The charges came to light this week.

Wilson could face up to 15 months in prison, if convicted.
