Brandenburg, Ky (WDRB) -- More court cases are being dismissed in Meade County after two state troopers were fired.
The Meade County Circuit Court Clerk's office says 10 cases were dismissed Wednesday, seven for DUIs and three for traffic violations.
The office says they were dismissed because the investigating officers listed were Kentucky State Police Troopers Jerry Clanton and Stratford Young. KSP confirms the two troopers from Post 4 were fired on Friday.
The Clerk's Office says the cases were dismissed Wednesday because the troopers were unavailable for court. That brings the total cases dismissed in two weeks in Meade County to 15 since five DUI cases were dismissed last week.
This all comes as a father tells WDRB that his 15-year-old daughter was the victim of an inappropriate relationship with two troopers, a Breckinridge County Sheriff's deputy, and a Brandenburg police officer.
Breckinridge Deputy Chris Woosley recently resigned, but his department will not say why.
Brandenburg Mayor David Pace told WDRB News Thursday that he will not release his officer's name who is on paid administrative leave because it's a personnel issue and he has no plans to terminate that officer at this time.
The Kentucky Attorney General's Office is in the process of naming a special prosecutor in the case. Once the KSP investigation is complete, it will be up to a grand jury to decide whether the men will face criminal charges.
Breckinridge County Attorney Bradley Butler says he has not dismissed any court cases involving the former Breckinridge deputy so far.

Nine people, including six law enforcement officers, were arrested Saturday on charges of operating an illegal horse racing track in Crosby, Harris County prosecutors said.
The 11-month investigation found that an illegal racing and gambling business was operated at Rancho El Herradero, 12402 Sralla Road, the district attorney's office said in a news release. Authorities said the six licensed police officers arrested were providing security at the track.
The six officers arrested were identified as Secar Guadelupe Rangel, 34, and Joel Garcia, 31, deputy constables in Harris County Precinct 1; Richard Rene Rivera, 57, a Department of Public Safety trooper; David Green, 37, andEdward Scott, 34, reserve deputy constables in Fort Bend County Precinct 2; and Carlos Garza, 64, a reserve sheriff's deputy in Maverick County in Southwest Texas.
Three civilians - Cosuelo Rivera, 61; Reginaldo Mandujano, 53; and Diana Marie Salinas,19 - also were arrested.
All nine were charged with racing without a license, a felony punishable by two to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. Cosuelo Rivera, identified as the wife of Richard Rene Rivera, also was charged with impersonating a peace officer.
All of the officers and Cosuelo Rivera were freed on bond, according to court records. Salina remains in a Harris County jail. Court records did not include any information on Mandujano's case.
Court records show Green was charged with theft in Harris County in 1994. Garza's record includes charges for assault and driving while intoxicated, court records state.
Terese Buess, chief of the DA office's public integrity division, said in the news release that the lengthy investigation included multiple undercover surveillance operations.
The investigation was led by the district attorney's office, DPS and the Texas Rangers.
Authorities said the track typically opened around mid-afternoon on weekends, with races continuing until about midnight.
