Former Madisonville Police Sergeant Sentenced to Probation

By  | 

A former Madisonville police sergeant will spend the next five years on probation after a jury found him guilty Friday of retaliation.

Jeffery Covington agreed to the sentence Monday morning.

He will also have to serve 30 days in jail as a condition of his probation and he'll have to give up his peace officer's license.

Covington was convicted of having someone plant drugs in his ex-wife's car last year.
