Former Deputy Jailer Sentenced For Meth-Related Crimes

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a former western Kentucky deputy jailer to ten years for manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine.

Attorney General Greg Stumbo's office says 50-year-old former Calloway County Deputy Jailer Danny Sholar was charged after sheriff's deputies searched his home November 13th.

During the search, the deputies noticed 40-year-old convicted felon Dwayne Childress and 49-year-old Rhoda Bunch return to a camper parked on Sholar's property in Hardin in Marshall County.

The statement says the officers, who were armed with an arrest warrant for Childress, went to the camper and saw items used to make methamphetamine inside. The statement says the deputies then searched the camper and found methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and evidence of meth manufacturing.

Childress was also sentenced to ten years for possessing and manufacturing. Bunch was ordered to serve five years for possession on a conditional plea pending appeal.
