A jury has convicted a former Kentucky trooper of carrying a firearm while trafficking prescription narcotics.
Michael Fred Pennington, 35, offered a woman a Lortab pill in exchange for sex in September. The woman alerted law enforcement and once Pennington arrived at her London residence and gave her the pill, Kentucky State Police detectives arrested him. Pennington resigned hours later.
Pennington pleaded guilty last week to two counts of drug trafficking. He worked out of KSP's London post, reports Lex18.
