The attorney for Barren County Sheriff Chris Eaton says a federal indictment is "unjustified" and no one used physical force on 30 year old Billy Stinnett after deputies handcuffed him.

Lawyer Guthrie True of Frankfort is representing Eaton. True told the Associated Press Thursday that the US Justice Department appeared to be "headstrong" about charging his client with a crime related to Stinnett's arrest on February 24, 2010.

A superseding indictment has been filed against an Iraqi man facing trial on terrorism charges, alleging he lied to gain refugee status and enter the U.S.  Documents were filed Wednesday in federal court in Bowling Green against 24-year-old Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, who faces a July trial. 

The two perjury charges were added to ten previous charges in which prosecutors allege Hammadi tried to funnel weapons and cash to Al-Qaida operatives in Iraq.
