Jefferson County constable to plead guilty

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Jefferson County constable has reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

Constable David Whitlock is charged with assault and wanton endangerment for shooting a woman suspected of shoplifting at the Walmart in Pleasure Ridge Park last November.

In August, he rejected a plea deal that would have allowed him to avoid jail time, but would have prevented him from serving in law enforcement again.

Friday, Whitlock's attorney confirmed he will plead guilty next week. However, he would not release the terms of this deal.
