Trial Date Set for Graves County Sheriff
By West Kentucky Star Staff
HOPKINSVILLE - Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon will go to trial next year.

Christian Circuit Judge John Atkins on Wednesday set a trial date of April 9, at 9:00 am.

In September, Redmon entered a not guilty plea to charges of official misconduct and first degree possession of a controlled substance. Redmon was indicted on those charges in August. He's accused of stealing hydrocodone from the sheriff department's drug drop box.

Redmon won re-election on Tuesday, beating six write-in candidates.

Atkins has ruled that Redmon can continue to perform his administrative duties as sheriff, such as collecting taxes, but he is not to have any weapons and can't perform any law enforcement duties until his case has ended.
