Louisville Metro Corrections employee accused of hiding suspect from police
Police say 20-year-old Kejohn Jennings now finds himself on the other side of the law.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville Metro Corrections employee is facing charges for helping a suspect hide from police.
Kejohn Jennings, age 20, was arraigned in Jefferson County District Court Tuesday morning. He's accused of trying to hide a domestic violence suspect from University of Louisville police.
An arrest report says police went to Jennings' home looking for a different suspect -- a man who they say choked a woman until she was unconscious.
Police believe Jennings was a witness to that incident.
The officers say Jennings told them the suspect was not in the home, but police say they heard the shower running, and found the suspect they were looking for hiding in the bathtub upstairs.
Jennings was arrested and charged with Hindering Prosecution or Apprehension. He pleaded not guilty Tuesday in court.
He works at Louisville Metro Corrections as a Corrections Technician in the records department. He is not a corrections officer and has worked there for almost a year.
He's scheduled to be back in court in July.
