The former sheriff's deputy who broke the law he was hired to uphold wasn't sentenced in federal court last week as planned. This time, his sentencing was delayed because he is on vacation.
But when he is sentenced in two weeks, Billy Rice faces as much as 30 years in federal prison and a large fine.
Rice, a former Taylor County Sheriff's Deputy, of Campbellsville, was charged in early October with committing federal drug crimes. He had initially pleaded not guilty, but has since entered a guilty plea to the charges.
