A former Fort Campbell soldier who reportedly admitted to police that he fondled the private parts of a child took a plea deal in Christian Circuit Court yesterday and will be on unsupervised probation, as long as he stays out of Kentucky.
The Christian County Sheriff’s Office and Oak Grove Police Department worked together in an investigation that led to the arrest of 24-year old Kyle Shelton in July of last year. A girl under the age of 12 said Shelton touched her privates in a residence and in a vehicle as he drove her home from a friend’s home.
The arrest warrant says Shelton admitted to the crime and he was charged with sexual abuse. The plea deal amended the charges down to wanton endangerment and Shelton remains in the Army at another post on probation.
He will not have to register as a sex offender and his probation will only be supervised if he comes back to Kentucky. He was also forced to make a 200 dollar donation to the Pennyrile Children’s Advocacy Center and is not allowed to make contact with the victim or her family.
