The former sheriff's deputy who now faces federal prison time for selling steroids has dropped a civil suit seeking unemployment benefits.
Former Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy William "Billy" Rice, 38, of Campbellsville, was charged in early October with committing federal drug crimes. He pleaded not guilty to the crimes, but entered a guilty plea two weeks ago in federal court.
Rice now faces as much as 30 years in prison, a maximum $1.5 million fine and two years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal prison system.
