Court Papers Give Details of Alleged Jail Assault
By West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - There are new details in the case of a local jailer charged with assaulting an inmate.

A Graves County grand jury returned a true bill of indictment against Graves County Jailer Randy Haley on Thursday, charging him with 2nd degree assault. According to court documents obtained by WestKentuckyStar, the alleged incident happened April 4, 2017.

The indictment says Haley "committed 2nd degree assault when he intentionally caused physical injury to James Stovall by means of a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument." Sources have told WestKentuckyStar Haley used a Taser on Stovall, who was an inmate at the jail. The incident was reportedly caught on jail security video.

A true bill indictment is the written decision of a grand jury that it has heard sufficient evidence from the prosecution to believe that an accused person probably committed a crime and should be put on trial.

Haley has served as Graves County Jailer since 2003.
