PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) – A jury has convicted a former Kentucky jailer on one count of perjury.
News outlets reported jurors handed down the verdict Thursday in the trial of former McCracken County Jailer Tonya Ray.
She was charged with lying under oath about jail policies that would have been in place when a former jail deputy was charged with official misconduct.
The question centered around whether the jail was following policies from a manual dated 2010 or 2012.
Ray’s attorney, Thomas Clay, called the testimonial error “an innocent mistake.” Sentencing was set for March 12.
