Two Kentucky State Police Troopers Fired, Could Face Criminal Charges

Two Kentucky State Police troopers have been fired following an investigation involving a teenage girl.  

A KSP spokesman confirmed Troopers Jerry Clanton and Stratford Young were terminated last Friday. The investigation was launched following accusations of inappropriate behavior involving a 15-year-old girl.

Both Clanton and Young were assigned to the Elizabethtown Post. Clanton was named Trooper of the year for the post in a ceremony held in May. 

Meade County officials say a grand jury will determine if any charges will be brought in the case.
