COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- A northern Kentucky prosecutor has charged a former county commissioner from Ohio with soliciting prostitution and drug trafficking.

The Kenton County Attorney's office announced the misdemeanor charges against 60-year-old Archie Wilson, who resigned abruptly last week from his position as Clermont County commissioner in Ohio.

A Kenton District Court clerk said Thursday morning that Wilson had not yet been arrested. A message left for Wilson at Midwestern Plumbing Services, which lists him as chief operating officer, was not immediately returned.

The case against Wilson began in Clermont County, according to a police report cited by The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/zK2JH7). The report says a female inmate at the Clermont County jail came forward alleging that Wilson had taken her to hotels in northern Kentucky where he paid her for sex and supplied her with drugs.
