BOWLING GREEN, Ky.
A former Taylor County sheriff's deputy charged with selling steroids has been set for trial in December.
FBI Special Agent Virginia McHenry wrote in an affidavit that Rice met with the informant three times — once in May and twice in August. McHenry says Rice sold Equipoise — which is commonly used on horses — for $150 and two other steroids in August.
Taylor County Sheriff Allen Newton said he fired Rice when he learned of the arrest.
Rice has pleaded not guilty.
