Former Central Kentucky Law Enforcement Officer Pleads Guilty to Dealing in Steroids

A former Taylor County sheriff’s deputy was in court Tuesday where he pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

A criminal complaint filed by an FBI agent stated that 38-year-old William Allen Rice sold anabolic steroids to an undercover informant on three occasions between May and August of 2013. 

In one instance, Rice met up with the undercover agent while in uniform and driving his Taylor County Sheriff’s Office vehicle.  In another transaction, Rice told the informant he would leave a bottle of steroids for him on the seat of his cruiser parked at his home in Campbellsville. 

Rice pleaded guilty to a three-count federal indictment Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Bowling Green.  He faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing.
