Trial For Ex-Deputy Set For December

Posted: Updated:

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - A former Taylor County sheriff's deputy charged with selling steroids has been set for trial in December.

The trial for 38-year-old William Allen Rice of Campbellsville, who was arrested in October on three counts of selling steroids to an undercover agent, is scheduled to take place in Bowling Green on Dec. 16.

FBI Special Agent Virginia McHenry wrote in an affidavit that Rice met with the informant three times -- once in May and twice in August. McHenry says Rice sold Equipoise -- which is commonly used on horses -- for $150 and two other steroids in August.

Taylor County Sheriff Allen Newton said he fired Rice when he learned of the arrest.

Rice has pleaded not guilty.
