Kentucky Judge Gives Jail Guard Convicted of Sexual Assault The Option of Joining Military or Serving Time in Jail

According to reports, a Kentucky judge has given a jail guard the option to join the army or serve a jail sentence after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a female inmate.

In his ruling, Judge Thomas Wingate sentenced Brandon Scott Price, 28, who is a veteran, to a 12-month sentence, which would carry over for two years, and ordered him to re-enlist in the military within 30 days.

“If you don’t enroll in 30 days, you can report to the Franklin County Regional Jail,” the judge told him.

“You are under the gun, young man. You got to do it.”

Originally, Price was charged in connection to a 2019 jail attack for third-degree sodomy. However, he pleaded down to a lesser charge of second-degree assault.

“You’re getting a huge break,” the judge told Prince said during his sentencing. “You made a terrible mistake, which I know personally cost the county money.”

Even if Price re-enlists in the military, it’s unclear whether he’ll be accepted because of his conviction.
Price was charged after a female inmate filed a lawsuit in January 2019 alleging he sexually abused her while working as a guard at the Franklin County Regional Jail.
According to the lawsuit, Price assaulted her while driving her to a nearby medical institution for her high blood pressure treatment.
In violation of jail policy, he took her to the hospital alone, stayed with her for 5 hours, and made sexually charged comments towards her.

According
to the
lawsuit, Price turned off onto a side road while transporting the inmate back to jail after treatment and offered her an early release if she performed oral sex on him. He then allegedly assaulted the inmate while she was still cuffed in the back of the van.

During a letter interview, Price denied all claims but admitted that it was a “stupid mistake” when the inmate “touched me inappropriately.”

Price was later released on a $10,000 bond.
