Luckie is a long-time Dayton Democrat who served 10 years on the school board and seven years in the Ohio House. In 2012, investigators found that Luckie diverted roughly $130,000 from his campaign account for personal use while serving in the Ohio House.

In early 2013, he pleaded guilty to six counts of election falsification, one count of money laundering, one count of grand theft and one misdemeanor county of filing a false ethics statement.

FBI agents found that Luckie used his campaign account between 2006 and 2012 to write $9,825 in checks to himself, make 169 cash withdrawals totaling $19,000 and conduct 800 debit card transactions totaling almost $40,000.

A year after his release from prison in March 2016, Luckie formed Kierston Olivia LLC, a land holdings company, according to Ohio Secretary of State records.

The Mound Development Corp. sold the former Health Physics Calibration Facility at 930 Capstone Drive to Kierston Olivia Co in June 2017. Kierston Olivia Co is listed as a holding company for Integrated Solutions and Services-Unlimited, led by Clarence R. McGill Jr. of Miamisburg.
