New Barren County sheriff to be announced Monday

Posted: Updated:

GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) -- There's going to be a new sheriff in town Monday in Barren County.

Judge-Executive Davie Greer told the Glasgow Daily Times that's when she plans to announce her appointment for the position.

Former Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton resigned Wednesday, and was sentenced the next day to 18 months in prison for persuading two deputies to write false incident reports in an FBI investigation of an alleged beating during an arrest.

The 42-year-old Eaton, of Glasgow, was acquitted during his trial in May of using excessive force but convicted of witness tampering.

Greer told the newspaper on Friday that she had narrowed her selection "to four or five" people.
