FACES MULTIPLE DECADES IN PRISON FOR HIS MISCONDUCT
On October 5, 2023, a federal grand jury indicted a former Kentucky Sheriff with “five counts of deprivation of rights under color of law, one count of falsification of records and one count of conspiracy.”
Apparently, Deputy Sheriff TMA (30), of Danville, Kentucky, used excessive force while arresting five people. During one of those arrests, he allegedly conducted “an illegal warrantless search of a hotel room.” On two other occasions, he is alleged to have “obstructed justice by writing and conspiring with another … to write false police reports to conceal his misconduct.”
According to a press release issued by the United States Department of Justice, TMA faces up to ten years in prison for each of the civil rights charges, while the falsification of records carries a maximum of 20 years in prison. Conspiracy is a maximum of five years.
An indictment is merely an allegation. All defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
Who should we report this to?
