Jamie Lee Wynn case
Another jail employee who faces a misdemeanor official misconduct charge in connection with his son’s incarceration at the Madison County Detention Center pleaded not guilty Sept. 23.
Lt. Jamie Lee Wynn is accused of interfering or circumventing procedures at the jail to give his son preferential treatment, according to the indictment.
First-degree official misconduct is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by 90 days to 12 months in jail and a fine less than or equal to $500.
A special judge, William “Bo” Leach who serves in Estill, Lee and Owsley counties, has been appointed to hear the case. A special prosecutor, Kathryn B. Hendrickson from the Mason County Attorney’s office, also has been appointed to handle Wynn’s case.
Wynn is represented by attorney Randy O’Neal. He is scheduled for a pretrial conference at 3 p.m. Oct. 21 in Madison District Court.
