A True Bill of Indictment was returned. The Grand Jury decided that evidence justified prosecution of second-degree assault, according to special prosecutor Dan Boaz.

Haley is still on the job, the special prosecutor said. 

Boaz said Haley's pre-trial for arraignment is set for June 22 at 11:30 a.m. At that time the case will be settled or a jury trial will be selected, according to Boaz.

A special judge has been appointed to the case, Judge Tony Kitchen.

Boaz assumes for right now, that court proceedings will take place in Mayfield, but that could change.
