Barren County Sheriff's Office files additional witness information

GLASGOW — As mandated by a Dec. 11, 2012, judge’s order, Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton’s defense counsel filed supplemental information Monday to describe the testimony Eaton’s expert witnesses will give when a deprivation of rights case goes to federal trial in April.

Eaton and deputies Aaron Bennett and Eric Guffey have been under federal indictment since February 2012 for allegedly beating an arrestee after he was in handcuffs and later lying to federal investigators about the incident. A dozen motions have been filed in the lengthy U.S. District Court case, most by the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division’s prosecution team.

In November, prosecutors Sanjay Patel and Roy Conn III filed a motion to exclude or limit testimony and also compel the defense to provide more information about testimony by expert witnesses George Nichols, a former Chief Medical Examiner for Kentucky; Alex Payne, a former Kentucky State Police officer, use of force expert and trainer in the use of the asp baton; and Robert Miller, former KSP with specialized training in accident reconstruction and Total Station software. Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr., ordered on Dec. 11 for parts of the prosecution’s motion to be upheld.
