Former State Trooper Will Spend Time In Prison

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Justice Department says a former
Kentucky State Police trooper has been sentenced to 10 months in
prison.
Jason O'Bannon was sentenced Thursday in federal court in
Lexington after pleading guilty in August to witness tampering and
violating the civil rights of a female victim.
O'Bannon worked as a state trooper from 1996 to 2007 and spent
much of his career at the London post.
O'Bannon admitted that in 2005 he forced a woman to kiss him and
tried to persuade a fellow state trooper to lie to a federal grand
jury about the incident. The woman was an undercover drug informant
for state police.

    SURE IS GETTING HARDER AND HARDER TO GET SOME "LIP" SUGAR WITHOUT GETTING IN SOME MUCH TROUBLE. CAN'T EVEN "KISS" YOUR WIFE UNLESS SHE WANTS YOU TO. SHE CAN EVEN GET YOU FOR RAPE.
