Pedigo trial date changed

GLASGOW — The trial of a man facing charges of drug trafficking and intimidation of a confidential informant was continued so that evidence just returned to his attorney can be reviewed.

“We are entitled to have sufficient time to look at this [evidence],” Johnny Bell, attorney for David Tyler Pedigo, said in a hearing on Monday in Barren County Circuit Court.

The computer of Pedigo, 23, was ordered returned to his attorney, Johnny Bell, on Sept. 26, by Circuit Judge Phil Patton, after almost a year of waiting on analysis of the computer.

The computer was seized by the Glasgow Police Department when a search warrant was executed on Pedigo’s home at the time of his arrest. The computer was then sent to the Kentucky Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory for analysis, where it has been since January 2012.

After a hearing on Sept. 24 in which Patton ordered the computer’s return, Commonwealth’s Attorney Karen Davis requested a meeting with Glasgow Police Department chief Guy Turcotte and lead investigators in the case. Sgt. Michael Burton showed the commonwealth emails sent by him giving direction to the KRCFL. The agent working the case there had not given a report back, according to emails in June between Burton and Mike Viergutz of the KRCFL.
