The answer to the question

On August 26, 2014, Rick Richards enters his guilty plea on two counts of trafficking in a controlled substance. Specifically, prescription Oxycodone and Hydrocodone.

On September 22, 2014 the Jefferson Circuit Court accepted the guilty plea and the plea agreement, and grants a motion for pretrial diversion.

On October 9, 2014 Defendant files a "Motion for the Defendant to Exercise Constitutional Rights" and the Jefferson Circuit Court grants the motion by entering an Order, "that Rick Richards is hereby allowed to continue to seek public office and to exercise his voting rights and any other constitutional rights therefore [sic] afforded him." 

On  Tuesday, November 11, 2014, Rick Richards wins the election for Mayor of West Buechel by 10 votes.

This is a legal move worthy of further discussion, but not today.
