Prosecutors ask for additional time in case against former LMPD officer accused of sex abuse

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The former Louisville Metro Police Department officer charged in a sex abuse case saw a judge on Wednesday.

Brandon Wood and former officer Kenneth Betts are accused of sexually abusing a teenager between 2011 and 2013, while the teen was in the department's Explorer Program for youth.

Prosecutors asked for more time to get discovery to Wood's lawyers. They say they're still gathering evidence in the case.

"We're still, we're in the process of waiting on some things from the police," said Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Christie Foster. "The investigation is ongoing, so I don't have everything yet."

No trial date has been set.
