A one-count information filed by federal prosecutors says Carolyn Ann Kitchen lied to investigators in 2008 about accepting money from ‘‘an individual known to the United States attorney.’’
Ex-Delegate Joe Ferrell of Chapmanville pleaded guilty earlier this month to running an illegal gambling ring. He said he bribed Kitchen to bend the rules for video lottery machines owned by his company.
Kitchen’s attorney, Nick Preservati, told the Charleston Gazette on Friday that Kitchen is ‘‘truly a good person,’’ but that even good people make bad decisions. He said she has not tried to blame others for her actions.
Kitchen faces up to five years in prison if convicted. A court date has not been set.
