Federal attorneys file motion against Eaton bond release during appeal

GLASGOW — The U.S. government has filed its argument in opposition to former sheriff Chris Eaton’s motion to remain free on bond while his appeal makes its way through the federal justice system.

Eaton was convicted in May of two counts of witness tampering in a deprivation of rights case in which the government accused him of beating suspect Billy Randall Stinnett as he was detained after a high-speed chase in February 2010. The charges on which Eaton was found guilty related to supposed attempts to cover up the assault, although he was acquitted of the charge directly related to the alleged beating as well as certain other charges.

Eaton was sentenced in August to 18 months in prison, with two years of supervised release to follow, and he was allowed to voluntarily report later. He was also ordered to pay $100 in court costs for each of the two guilty counts.
