Molen’s lawyers file motions for discovery with feds

Deputy is facing civil rights charges

(Continued)

Somerset —

Numerous other witnesses testified during the hearing about the alleged brutality on the part of Molen, but several of them, during cross-examinations, stated they had been drinking when the incidents occurred. 
Molen was the target of another lawsuit, filed in 2011 by Kevin McCoy, that was eventually dismissed as well. 
And the current criminal case against Molen may not be the last. Molloy, the U.S. prosecutor, during a July 11 hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Hanly A. Ingram in London, stated he was anticipating a third case against Molen to be brought before a grand jury, this time in U.S. District Court in the Western District of Kentucky, stemming from an alleged incident that he said occurred “just over the county line in Russell County.”
A motions hearing is set for Aug. 13, and a final pretrial conference is set for Aug. 23.
