 SHEPHERDSVILLE -- A former chief deputy has now been cleared on all criminal charges in Bullitt County.

A prosecutor’s request to dismiss without prejudice charges against John Cottrell was granted Monday in Bullitt Circuit Court.

Cottrell, who served under retired sheriff Dave Greenwell, was indicted on three felony charges.

Cottrell would face felonies for taking control of a legend drug while it was in the evidence room. He also allegedly abused the trust of a law enforcement official and tampered with physical evidence.
