BCSO deputy faces revoked release

GLASGOW — One deputy in a federal case against three members of the Barren County Sheriff’s Office allegedly violated the conditions of his release and will be required to appear in court to defend why his release should not be modified or revoked.

Deputy Aaron Bennett has been indicted in U.S. District Court on charges of deprivation of rights, witness tampering, falsification of documents and making false statements to federal investigators, along with Sheriff Chris Eaton and Deputy Eric Guffey following an arrest made on Feb. 24, 2010.

One of the conditions of the three men’s release following a pre-trial appearance in federal court in Bowling Green on March 28 was the agreement that none of the defendants intentionally contact government witnesses, although the government refused to identify all but one of its witnesses.

“The defendant shall have no contact, direct or indirect, with any person whom the defendant knows will be a witness against him at the trial of this matter,” court documents stated. “As the United States has chosen not to specifically identify the government’s witnesses at this stage of the proceedings, the defendant is urged to exercise great caution in abiding by this no contact condition of release.”
