A Monroe County jury recommended a 10-year sentence earlier this week for a Tompkinsville dispatcher in a sex abuse case.
Darrell Ford, 59, of Tompkinsville, stood trial on charges of first-degree sodomy, incest-forcible, a Class B felony; compulsion/incapable of consent or under the age of 18, a Class B felony; and first-degree sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 12, a Class C felony.
Ford was on administrative leave without pay. Prior to working as a dispatcher, he had been a Tompkinsville police officer.
He was found not guilty of first-degree sodomy, but guilty of incest-forcible and first-degree sexual abuse, according to Monroe County Circuit Court records.
