Federal Investigators were in Barren County yesterday serving search warrants in Sheriff Chris Eaton's federal case.
The investigators stopped at the Sheriff's department's public information officer to see if he had any more photos relating to the alleged incident in the case.
Eaton and a few other deputies were charged with the beating of Billy Stinnett in 2010 then lying about it to investigators. Eaton and other deputies pleaded not guilty originally, but since some of the deputies have changed their pleas to guilty.
Eaton's attorney, Guthrie True, said yesterday's events were all a big show by the federal investigators.
"I really look at this as an act of desperation on the part of the government. They've tried to put on a big show over there in Barren County in hopes that it's somehow going to prejudice Sheriff Eaton and the other two deputies that intend to go to trial," said True.
Eaton is scheduled to be in court August 27th, but that could get pushed back, since there is another trial scheduled to begin that day.
