Cops & Courts

  • Brandenburg man indicted for manslaughter

    A Brandenburg man has been indicted for vehicular manslaughter in the death of another Brandenburg man in a traffic fatality in Shelby County in October.

  • Putnam trial moved to February

    A jury trial for Terry Putnam, the Simpsonville Police officer arrested Jan. 7 in connection with the November 2015 robbery of the police department, has been moved to February.

    Putnam’s trial date had been set for Jan. 17, but at his pretrial conference Monday that date was pushed to Feb. 1.

  • Investigation continues into fatal police shooting

    KSP is continuing its investigation into a break-in at Simpsonville Baptist Church in which a Shelbyville man was fatally shot by a Shelby County Sheriff’s deputy.

    Shelby County Chief Deputy Coroner Ittin Russell said it could be weeks before autopsy results on Dylan Dalzell are available, but police say the deputy involved could soon be back to work.

  • Hearing to be scheduled in embezzlement case

    Jenny King of Shelby County, a former longtime finance officer for Shelby County Fiscal Court, charged with embezzling more than $23,000, could appear in court in December for a disposition hearing.

    King, who was charged with stealing the money from the county’s general fund over an 18-month period from April 2013 to December 2014, was scheduled for a disposition hearing Monday, but the hearing was postponed due to a docket pass, which occurs occasionally when the docket becomes too full.

    Those cases that were postponed will be given a court date soon.

  • Jury duty scam rampant again

    Michele Wolfe can breathe a sigh of relief now that the ordeal is over.

    She had almost fallen prey to the widely circulating jury duty scam, which would have robbed her of $2,000.

    “This guy asked me to go to the bank and get my money and then he would meet me at the sheriff’s department,” she said. “I mean, he gave me court numbers, he gave me the court date, I mean he gave it to me all. I was like, ‘Wow, OK.’ Everything seemed up front, it seemed for real.”

  • Police seeking help finding man exposing himself

    Police are appealing to the public to locate a man who exposed himself to a woman near downtown Shelbyville Monday afternoon.

    Kentucky State Police Trooper Bernice Napier said the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. near Washington and Alton streets.

    Napier said that when they responded to the call, the woman said the man followed her down Washington Street then got out of his car near Alton Road and exposed his genitals to her.

  • New cops on the beat

    Three new police officers are on the job at the Shelbyville Police Department; all fresh from the police academy.

    The three new officers graduated from the academy on a Friday and began at Shelbyville P.D. the following Monday, said Shelbyville Police Chief Danny Goodwin.

    “They all graduated from the police academy on October seventh, and they have started their training with us,” said Goodwin.

    The academy consists of 23 weeks of training at Eastern Kentucky University.

  • Anglin sentencing postponed again

    A sentencing hearing for a former Shelby County Public Schools payroll manager charged with embezzling more than a half million dollars has been delayed a second time.

    Benita Anglin was originally scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 19, but Judge Charles Hickman rescheduled it for Oct. 21 at the request of her attorney, Matthew Pippin, who said that Anglin was ill.

    Sentencing has now been scheduled – for the third time – for Nov. 7.

    It is not clear why the event has been postponed yet again.

  • King has court date Friday in embezzlement case

    Jenny King of Shelby County, a former longtime finance officer for Shelby County Fiscal Court, charged with embezzling more than $23,000, will appear in court Friday for a disposition hearing.

    King is charged with stealing the money from the county’s general fund over an 18-month period from April 2013 to December 2014.
