Trial of 3 officers to begin March 22 in Richmond

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - A judge in Richmond has set a trial date
for three Richmond city police officers accused of witness
tampering.

The Richmond Register reported Sgt. James Rogers and Officers
Garry Murphy and Brian Hensley face trial beginning March 22.
Madison County Circuit Judge William Clouse set the date during a
motions hearing on Thursday.

Clouse denied a motion to expand a "no contact" order, saying
defense and prosecution attorneys are free to contact the female
witness, but she doesn't have to speak to them.

Rogers was indicted on one count of intimidating or tampering
with a witness. Murphy and Hensley each face one count of
complicity to commit the intimidation of or tampering with a
witness stemming from an October incident.
