August trial date set for former jail employee

CORBIN — By Charlotte Underwood / Staff Writer

After months of continuances, an erroneous dismissal, and delays, an August trial date has been set in the drunk driving case against a former Whitley County jail employee, according to court documents.

Commonwealth’s Attorney and special prosecutor Allen Trimble recently filed a motion for a trial date to be set regarding the DUI case against Lloyd E. Davenport. Trimble, along with Davenport’s attorney, Jane Butcher, met in Whitley County Judge Fred White’s courtroom Wednesday and asked that a trial date be set for Aug. 8.

 “I expect it will be resolved on the August date; it will be the first priority of the court that day,” Trimble said.

 Davenport was arrested on May 9, 2010, by Williamsburg Police Officer Brandon White and charged with careless driving and driving under the influence. Davenport worked for the Whitley County Detention Center at the time of his arrest.

 Trimble was named as special prosecutor in the case in December, after the Attorney General’s Office received the request from the Williamsburg Police Department. Trimble had filed motions in December asking that the case be reinstated.

 Williamsburg Police Chief Wayne Bird said that he was glad the case was reinstated and finally going to be resolved.

“I think that reinstating the case was the right thing to do; it is a simple DUI case and it shouldn’t be treated any differently than any other DUI case. It’s a shame that we have to follow our cases that closely,” Bird said.

The case is set to be heard by White at 9 a.m., on Aug. 8.
