LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Metro councilman David James spoke about the ruling for councilwoman Barbara Shanklin.

On a vote late last night, she was found guilty of misconduct by fellow council members but will be able to keep her job.

The jury was made up of 20 council members and only 14 votes were required for removal.

The charges showed Shanklin improperly controlled $75 thousand in neighborhood grants and improperly benefited from a program for ex-offenders funded with $38 thousand in city funds.
