B5 THE COURIER-JOURNAL COURTS DEATHS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2. 1994 LOUISVILLE AREA DEATHS Ex-head of GTECH back before grand jury By TOM LOFTUS Staff Writer GTECH Corp.'s former boss in Kentucky testified yesterday before a special federal grand jury apparently examining the company's past dealings as chief contractor for the Kentucky Lottery Corp. Janet Levine, who left GTECH in the spring of 1993 and now works for a competitor, declined to comment on her testimony as she left the federal courthouse in Louisville. Her attorney, James Shuffett of Lexington, also declined to comment on why the jury wanted to hear from Levine. Levine also testified early this year, when the investigation began. Investigators appear to be looking at a possible business relationship between GTECH and former state Finance Secretary Rogers Wells. The investigation involves a Lexington company called Bluegrass Industrial Distributors Inc. that appears to exist only on paper. Investigators appear to be trying to determine whether Bluegrass is linked to Wells, whether it has been a supplier to GTECH and what services or supplies, if any, Bluegrass provided to GTECH. Bluegrass, formed in 1992, is not listed in the Lexington telephone directory and has one officer E. Douglas Richards, a Lexington lobbyist and attorney who filed the company's articles of incorporation. Richards said he filed the papers at the request of a client, whom he would not identify. GTECH, the giant lottery supplier and consultant based in Rhode Island, has been paid about $45 million by the Kentucky Lottery since 1989 for computer and related services for games. As head of GTECH's Kentucky operations until the spring of 1993, Levine would obviously know much about the company's dealings with its suppliers in Kentucky as well as its dealings with the Kentucky Lottery. Levine now works with Video Lottery Consultants in Montana. Robert Rendine, GTECH's manager of public affairs, said through a spokesman yesterday that the company has no knowledge of the investigation. Wells, who served as finance secretary throughout the 1987-91 administration of Gov. Wallace Wilkinson, has not responded to The Courier-Journal's inquiries in recent months. A Glasgow native who now lives in Woodford County, Wells got involved in the lottery industry in 1992. He bought controlling interest in Interlott Inc., an Ohio firm that makes lottery ticket vending machines. The firm had a contract with the Kentucky Lottery at the time Wells bought it. In late 1992, the lottery gave his American Wood Products company a contract for display booths for use at lottery retailers. Reports that Wells held the two contracts sparked controversy at the lottery that eventually resulted in a state audit that toppled the lottery's management. Officials hold off charging parents of boy who shot self ; There are no immediate plans to charge the parents of a 13-year-old Clifton boy who killed himself Wednesday with a handgun he found in his parents' bedroom, police said. Branden Young's parents could be charged under new state laws that make it a crime when juveniles find and fire unsecured guns. "The circumstances are not blatant enough where we feel comfortable enough in bringing the charge now," said Lt. Gene Sherrard of the Louisville police homicide squad.- Once police complete their investigation, Sherrard said, they will talk with prosecutors and decide whether the parents should face charges. : Branden shot himself in the head about 5:50 p.m. in his home at 119 William St., police said. He was pronounced dead at Kosair Children's Hospital at 8:20 p.m. Sherrard confirmed that there was one spent round in the chamber of the gun when police found Branden, but there was nothing to indicate a game of Russian roulette was being played. "All indications are that it was self-inflicted," he said. "Whether it was an accident or intentional on his part is unclear at this point." Branden was a student at Mey-zeek Middle School, where he was a member of the basketball team. Survivors include his mother, De-anna Young; his father, Walter L. Young Jr.; a half brother, Troy- E. Young; two half sisters, Shauna L. Young and Rhonda Bynum Young; and a grandmother, Helen Louise Cheeks. The funeral will be at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Neurath & Underwood Funeral Home, 725 E. Market St., with burial in Resthaven Memorial Park. Visitation is from 1 to 9 p.m. today and 10-11 a.m. tomorrow. The family suggests that memorial gifts go to Kosair Charities. Thomas Chastain, mystery writer, dies 0 New York Times News Service Thomas Chastain, a best-selling mystery writer and a former head of the Mystery Writers of America, died yesterday of lung cancer in Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. He was 73 and lived in Manhattan. Chastain's most successful book, "Who Killed the Robins Family?," published in 1983, reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list in January 1984. It sold more than a million copies. Chastain's wife, Louise, said yesterday Bill Adler, a book packager, came up with the idea of having Chastain write a mystery containing no solutions but offering readers a $10,000 reward for solving the crime. That marketing strategem was credited with playing a large role in the book's success. She said the $10,000 was won by four married couples from Denver. Chastain was born in Canada, grew up mainly in the American South and studied at Johns Hopkins University. He worked in Baltimore as a newspaperman and in New York City as an advertising copywriter. He also wrote for men's adventure magazines. In addition to his wife, he is survived by a sister and a brother.

Burial: Glasgow Munici From AP and Staff Dispatches FRANKFORT, Ky. - The suspension of a former district judge for legal mistakes and campaign misbehavior was reduced to a reprimand by the state Supreme Court yesterday. In another decision, the court ordered a county attorney to surrender his license to practice law. The suspension order issued by the commission created to discipline judges "would have no practical effect" because the former judge has left Kentucky, the court's majority said. In a dissenting opinion, Justice Charles Leibson said that was no excuse. "I know of no reason why 'practical problems' related to carrying out a penalty . . . should lessen the penalty assessed by due process of law," he wrote. The case involved Karen "Kay" Doyle, who was district judge for Magoffin and Knott counties. Two political opponents Circuit Judge John Robert Morgan and Circuit Court Clerk Tommy Jayne, an avid supporter of Morgan filed charges against Doyle with the Judicial Retirement and Removal Commission last yeai. Doyle was running against Morgan at the time. She also was locked in a "bitter personal conflict" with Jayne, the majority opinion by Justice Donald Wintersheimer said. Portion of Illegal per se' law on drunken driving struck down The commission found Doyle guilty of three charges involving deliberate misrepresentation of fact in campaign advertisements. The nature of the ads was not clear; they were only vaguely described by Wintersheimer. The commission also ruled that Doyle had refused to assess fines, court costs and mandatory service fees in some drunken-driving cases. In its 6-1 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the two counts involving fines and fees and one count involving a campaign ad. It said the commission lacked enough evidence for the others. County attorney The court ordered Ballard County Attorney Larry G. Kelley, who is under felony indictment for allegedly misusing a credit card, to surrender his license after he admitted engaging in professional misconduct. An investigation by the attorney general's office resulted in a June 2 criminal information alleging that Kelley obtained a credit card in a dead client's name and charged more than $1,000 worth of cash advances and merchandise to it. According to the order, Kelley cannot seek reinstatement for a minimum of five years and cannot regain his license as long as there are pending civil claims against him. The criminal case is still pending. the majority. Two men who filed the appeal "were charged with a new offense the so-called 'per se' crime. They face enhanced punishment for being guilty of that new crime by virtue of past convictions for previous crimes, which were decidedly different in nature," Stephens said. The appeal was by Jerry Wayne Botkin and Winston Brent Storey, arrested in separate incidents in Fleming County in 1991. Their alcohol levels were 0.21 percent and 0.13 percent, respectively. Each had two drunken-driving convictions, and their sentences were enhanced accordingly. Fleming Circuit Court upheld the convictions and sentences, but they were vacated by the Supreme Court. In a dissent, Justice Donald Wintersheimer said nothing in the constitution prohibited the men from being sentenced as "repeat offenders," and noted that "Kentucky law has provided harsher punishment for habitual drunk drivers." bar association of reinstatement. The end of a suspension period does not automatically result in reinstatement. Keeney was also suspended in July 1993 for 59 days for failing to return unearned fees and failing to exercise diligence and promptness. During that time, Keeney was the subject of David Heilbroner's best-selling book, "Death Benefits," which details his three-year battle to solve the murder of Louisville native Deana Hubbard Wild. Associated Press FRANKFORT, Ky. - The state Supreme Court yesterday declared unconstitutional part of a new law that makes it "illegal per se" to drive with a certain alcohol level. The justices struck down a section of the statute that allowed an increased penalty if the defendant had a prior drunken-driving conviction. There could be no prior violation of the "per se" law because it "creates a new crime," the court said in a 5-2 ruling. The 1991 law made it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood-alcohol or breath-alcohol concentration of 0.10 percent or more. Previous drunken-driving statutes contained a legal but rebuttable "presumption" of intoxication at that level. They also prescribed heavier penalties with each new conviction. But the "per se" statute "is a different breed of cats," Chief Justice Robert Stephens said, writing for Lawyer reinstated by Louisville lawyer Steven Keeney was reinstated yesterday by the Kentucky Bar Association. Keeney, who received national acclaim for solving a California murder that police had written off as an accident, was suspended in February for 60 days for failing to keep a client reasonably informed and failing to comply promptly with reasonable requests for information. According to a reinstatement order, Keeney must pay the costs of processing the application KENTUCKY DEATHS BARBOURVILLE - Eula Mae Click, 82 " BEAVER DAM Carl R.
