According to the Bowling Green Daily News, 64-year-old Gail Guiling pleaded not guilty during a Logan Circuit Court arraignment Friday. Guiling is the commonwealth's attorney for Logan and Todd counties. She is charged with engaging in organized crime alongside 10 co-defendants.

The case stems from the Logan County Sheriff's Office investigation into the sale of stolen property. Guiling also faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and second-degree official misconduct. Allegations against Gail Guiling include not reporting a crime she witnessed. Her ex-husband, James Quinton Guiling, is a co-defendant. Guiling retains her office and pay but cannot perform her job during the pending criminal case.
