Glasgow attorney charged with minor assault of juvenile
GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) - A Glasgow attorney is facing an assault charge against a juvenile that was reported back in June.
According to official records, Shawn Ken Garrett struck a 14-year-old with a wooden paddle several times and caused physical and mental harm. Garrett is an attorney at Ken Garrett, Attorney at Law in Glasgow.
The complaint says several strikes occurred in one day back in June, and the final strike caused the one-inch paddle of wood being used on the teen to break into two pieces.
Garrett has been charged with fourth-degree assault (minor injury).
A special judge was assigned to the case. The next hearing will be on November 29.
The attorney representing Garrett, Jason C. Hays and Steve Romines (lead counsel), has released the following statement about the case:
“This case is solely the result of previously unfounded allegations following an acrimonious divorce. These identical claims have undergone two separate investigations by Social Services which found them unsubstantiated. This is simply another attempt to relitigate these same baseless claims that were previously dismissed. We look forward to trial and exposing this for the farce it is.”
