KENTUCKY SHERIFF CHARGED
Federal appeals court to hear case of former Kentucky sheriff convicted of witness tampering

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 4:01 AM EDT
BOWLING GREEN, Ky.


A federal appeals court is set to take up the case of former Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton's conviction on two counts of witness tampering.

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in Eaton's case on June 19 in Cincinnati.

A federal jury in Bowling Green convicted Eaton in 2013 of directing two deputies to write false incident reports for the FBI. Federal investigators were probing accusations of civil rights violations during a 2010 arrest.

Eaton was sentenced to 18 months in prison. U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley concluded that Eaton raised two reasonable issues that could result in his winning a new trial and allowed him to remain free on bond while the appeal is heard.
