Prosecutors in Barren County Sheriff's case reply to defense response, trial postponed

GLASGOW — Federal prosecutors filed a reply Monday to defense attorneys' arguments against a motion regarding expert witnesses in the deprivation of rights case of Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton and two deputies. The case will also not see trial until mid-spring, Eaton's attorney said.

Sanjay Patel, trial attorney for the Civil Rights Division of the United States Department of Justice, wrote in his response to attorneys for deputies Aaron Bennett and Eric Guffey that there was inadequate information submitted in a notice of expert witnesses submitted by Eaton.

Patel also argued that testimony by a “use of force expert,” Alex Payne, should be excluded from trial. In Patel's reply to the motion, he argued that Payne was not qualified as a medical professional to testify about “what did or did not cause a particular injury,” according to court documents.

The motion comes after a second superseding indictment was filed on Nov. 14 adding two charges to the list of allegations against Eaton. A second charge of deprivation of rights and a count of destruction of record, document, tangible object were added to the charges of falsifying records, witness tampering and giving false statements.
