SALYERSVILLE Three Magoffin County residents were indicted in federal court earlier this week on charges of vote buying during the 2010 general election.
Randall E. Salyer, 54, Patricia L. Trusty, 43, and Donald Trusty, 43, all from Salyersville, were indicted this past week on the charges.
The indictment alleges all three paid several people for their votes in November. Salyer is charged with four counts of vote buying, while Donald Trusty faces two counts of the same charge and Patricia Trusty, a single charge for buying votes.
The investigation before the indictment was officially issued was conducted by the Kentucky Attorney Generals Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The U.S. District Court of Eastern Kentucky has not yet released further details concerning the allegations and a date has not been set for the three Magoffin residents next appearance in federal court.
If convicted, each of the three could face a maximum prison sentence of five years.
