FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - The attorney of a man convicted of killing a University of Kentucky football player was in court Tuesday answering charges stemming from a December arrest.
Shane Ragland's attorney appeared on his behalf for his arraigned in Franklin District Court on December 5, 2012 charges of alcohol intoxication and possession of an open alcohol beverage container in a car.
In 2002, Ragland was charged with shooting Trent DiGiuro on his own front porch in 1994. He was convicted of the murder, then released when his conviction was overturned. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to time served.
Ragland was not able to appear at his arraignment Tuesday because he remains in the hospital after he was seriously injured in an accident on December 30, 2012. Police said he was driving a Dodge Durango going north on the Gene Snyder to exit on east bound 64. The Durango overturned and Ragland, who was alone in the vehicle and not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. Witnesses told police that Ragland was driving fast, especially for the curve in the ramp and wet conditions of the road.
Ragland was taken to University Hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries. Police said no charges were filed against Ragland in the wreck.
Ragland is scheduled to appear in court on the December 5 charges on April 23, 2013.
