A federal appeals court has ruled that two central Kentucky prosecutors are immune from a civil suit brought after a failed criminal prosecution.
The two men, and another defendant, James J. Rogers, were found not guilty in in 2010.
The Richmond Register reported that investigation stemmed from a sexual encounter they had with a woman, April McQueen, on Oct. 29. 2009.
Murphy, Hensley and Rogers sued the Smiths, then-Madison County Sheriff Nelson O'Donnell, two deputies, two of McQueen's neighbors and her landlord.
