Feds execute search warrant at BCSO

Prosecutors request new trial date

GLASGOW — The Barren County Sheriff’s Office received an unexpected visit from federal agents on Thursday who came equipped with a search warrant, according to officials and attorneys.

Sheriff Chris Eaton and public information officer Trevor Phillips confirmed that federal agents had come to both the BCSO and Phillips’ home Thursday morning.

Neither commented further on the visits. Eaton referred other questions to his attorney, J. Guthrie True, and Phillips said he was in the process of obtaining an attorney.

True said he was looking into harassment or other action that could be taken in the matter and said he was aware a search warrant was involved in the visit.

“From what I’ve heard they were looking for photographs that may have been taken of Mr. [Billy Randall] Stinnett,” True said. “I have no idea why they think there would be more photographs.”

Stinnett is the subject of the deprivation of rights case against Eaton and deputies Aaron Bennett and Eric Guffey, who are alleged to have used excessive force on Stinnett after he was arrested in February 2010, and also alleged to have falsified documents and lied to federal investigators about the case.
