Gov. Steve Beshear has granted a partial pardon to 62-year old Ron Berry, the former head of the Micro-City Government youth program who was convicted on 12 counts of sodomy with 12- to 16-year-old boys in 2002. Berry completed a three-year prison sentence in 2005, but it is also reported that more than 160 individuals have sued the Urban County Government "claiming city officials ignored or concealed information that Berry was molesting under-age boys and girls for decades."
