A private investigator has told the Barren County Attorney that he does not have a copy of his own investigative report, but a new circuit court order allows the investigator himself and his computer to be subpoenaed for examination at trial.
Private Investigator Mike Ober, who was hired by the Barren County Fiscal Court for a fee of $3,500 to investigate the Barren County Detention Center, received a subpoena for his investigative report last month. The fiscal court did not already have the full report because after receiving a summary of the report in May, the court voted to have Ober give the full investigative report directly to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The court was under the impression at the time that Ober’s report would not be subject to open records law if the court did not have possession of it.
