Prosecution testimony is underway in the trial of a former 911 Director in Lawrence County, Ky. charged with rape.
49-year-old Jeffrey Pack of Louisa is charged with three counts of 3rd degree rape. The trial is taking place in Lawrence County Circuit Court. It began with jury selection Monday morning.
Investigators say Pack was engaging in illegal sexual activity with an underage female, who was an acquaintance. He was arrested by Kentucky State Police in March 2011.
During Pack’s preliminary hearing, Prosecutor Michael Hogan told the court that Pack was a Deacon in his church and that the first alleged rape happened on a church trip in Georgia when the victim was 15, and then continued back in Lawrence County until after the victim turned 16.
The trial is expected to wrap up Tuesday.
Pack resigned as 911 Director in November 2007 following allegations of inappropriate behavior.
