A Glasgow man convicted in 2010 of encouraging minors to commit sexual acts has had portions of his sentence overturned, and has been released from prison after serving less than three years of his 25-year sentence.
Troy Alan Kingrey, now 39, was convicted in an October 2010 trial in Barren Circuit Court of one count of use of a minor under the age of 16 in a sexual performance and six counts of use of a minor under the age of 18 in a sexual performance, and he was sentenced to 25 years in prison. His initial motion for a mistrial was denied, but he appealed the verdicts, and the case went to the Kentucky Supreme Court due to the length of Kingrey’s sentence.
In May 2013, the Supreme Court of Kentucky filed an opinion that affirmed part of Kingrey’s convictions and reversed and remanded part. The justices found that Barren Circuit Court was correct to deny Kingrey’s motion for a mistrial, but they agreed with Kingrey’s argument that he was denied a unanimous jury verdict.
