"Bullman" Is Out Of Jail

A two-time candidate for governor is out of jail.

The Lexington Herald reports Otis Hensley's son put up a ten thousand dollar bond for his release.

Hensley was arrested Monday on a sex related charge after a comment he made about trading a hog for two young girls at a store.

Hensley says his comment was just a joke.

Family members of the two girls say they felt threatened by what he said.

    I am sorry but I just beleive that it is just for money, wife and sons and family are fanstastic people, I think when Otis is proven NOT guilty, that the people should apologize to him openly,if front of all Kentucky. This is an embrassment to the family.............Thank you.....

    THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW STUPID PEOPLE CAN BE. DID THEY REALLY THINK HE MEANT IT. TO ME IT WAS JUST A WAY TO COMPLIMENT HOW NICE THE GIRLS LOOKED.

    The family was not threatened by Mr. Hensley. Simply apauled that he would make such a comment. Can someone please tell me what a 52 year old male would want with a young girl of 11 or 13. The comment was rude and completely uncalled for. A child should not be compared to a swine that wallows in the mud and slop of a barn yard. The full comment that Mr. Hensley made was " I'll trade you a hog for one of those pretty little girls to keep me warm this winter". Wymtnews was given a statement by the family to this affect, however that part of Mr. Hensley's comment was ommited from the follow up report by WYMTnews. I understand where the family is coming from. This is not an appropriate comment to be made by a 52 year old man to an elleven and thirteen year old. Thank you for listening. Mad in Harlan Co.

    The only real joke in this matter is the Family of the girls, they are just looking for an easy dollar!

    Why would anyone joke like that with someone they don't know? Even if you did know them I see nothing funny with what he said and if he said that to my daughters I would have pressed charges as well.
