Judge rejects deputy's plea deal

GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A judge has rejected a plea deal for a former sheriff's deputy in central Kentucky who is accused of stealing drugs from an evidence locker.

The proposed deal would have allowed former deputy William J. "Jeremy" Day avoid jail time.

The Georgetown News-Graphic reported that Scott County Circuit Judge Rob Johnson said during a hearing on Monday that pre-trial diversion was too lenient of a punishment.

The judge's decision stopped Day from entering a guilty plea in the case.

Day was indicted last year on charges of theft of a controlled substance and theft by unlawful taking.
