Kentucky State Police said the McCracken County Jailer was arrested on perjury charges.

Tonya D. Ray, 43, of Paducah, Kentucky was taken to the Christian County Jail.

KSP began investigating her October testimony in a McCracken County case involving former Deputy Jailer Ben Green. Immediately following Ray’s testimony, the pending criminal charges against former Deputy Green were dismissed.

On Friday, Dec. 22, the results of KSP’s investigation were presented to a McCracken County Grand Jury and the grand jury returned an indictment on Ray.

The case will be prosecuted by Christian County Commonwealth Attorney Lynn Pryor who was appointed as special prosecutor by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office.

The investigation is continuing by KSP Det. Cory Hamby. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kentucky State Police Post 1 at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555.
