Judge: Kentucky governor cannot be prosecuted while in office
  法官规定:肯塔基州长在职时不能被指控
  By ROGER ALFORD Associated Press Writer
  美联社 罗杰•阿尔佛德
  
  
  (AP) - FRANKFORT, Kentucky-A judge ruled Friday that Gov. Ernie Fletcher, under fire for a hiring scandal, is protected by executive immunity and cannot be prosecuted while in office.
  【美联社】 法兰克福,肯塔基州——一位法官星期五规定,受人员雇用丑闻攻击的州长遏尼•弗莱且受行政保护,不会在职时被指控。
  Special Judge David E. Melcher essentially stayed the case until Fletcher's term expires, or unless he is removed through impeachment by the legislature.
  特别法官大卫•E•米尔切本来延缓该案子直到弗莱且任期届满,或者除非其受立法机构弹劾而离职。
  Fletcher, Kentucky's first Republican governor in three decades, was indicted in May on charges alleging his administration rewarded political supporters with protected state jobs. He has accused the Democratic attorney general of conducting a politically motivated investigation in the case.
  弗莱且,是近三十年来肯塔基州的首任共和党人州长,于今年五月因经费而受指控——他所领导的行政管理部门因保护州工作机会而受到政治拥护者的奖励。他谴责民主党的首席检察官在该案中故意实施政治上的调查。
  Scott Crawford-Sutherland, the state attorney general's top prosecutor, urged the judge not to dismiss, saying no man is above the law.
  萨瑟兰的斯科特•克劳福德,是州首席检察官的主办公诉人,他催促法官不应拖延了事,他说,没人可以逾越法律之上。
  "There is no state in this country that has extended the kind of immunity urged by the governor," he said.
  “在这个国家没有哪一个州因州长的催促而延伸、扩展这种保护权”,他说。
  Defense attorney Steve Pitt said during the hearing Friday that the governor was willing to face a jury.
  辩护律师史蒂夫•皮特说,在星期五聆讯时,州长将面对陪审团。
  "In some ways, that may be personally preferable, but there are other considerations as well which lead to the motion to dismiss. That is the important need of this state to return to normalcy, and get back to the operation of government as it should be without the cloud hanging over it of this unprecedented criminal case," he said.
  “在某些方面,那也许会更可取,但是基于别的方面考虑,那将导致解职。当务之急是这个州回到常态,回到以前没有这件空前的案件所造成的乌云笼罩时的政府运作中去”,他说。

  "the motion to dismiss"
  
  motion: is a formal plea/request in court
  motion to dismiss: is a plea/request to dismiss the case (in which governor is on trial/indicted)
  
  here "motion to dismiss" vs. the other choice of continue trial, which "In some ways, that may be personally preferable"
