At the Christian County Courthouse on Friday morning, former Kincaid Police Chief, Richard S. Adams, plead guilty to a Class A misdemeanor charge of theft. The Class 3 felony of official misconduct was dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea. He was sentenced to two years of conditional discharge, and was also ordered to pay fines and restitution. He will also have to do 120 hours of community service work.
Adams’ case goes back to 2014 when he was arrested for knowingly using village employees to make repairs to his residence on their village time. Adams was represented by Defense Attorney Aaron Calvert, while Special Prosecutor Charles Zalar presided over the case.
