Greenville police deptGREENVILLE, Ky. (4/11/14) — Greenville Police Chief Darren Harvey has confirmed to SurfKY News that charges of official misconduct, 1st degree, and sexual abuse, 3rd degree have been filed against former GPD Officer Ben Aders.

Speaking with SurfKY News Friday, April 11, Chief Harvey said Aders was one of the newest members of the GPD.

During the course of the investigation, Officer Aders tendered his resignation, which has been accepted. The investigation has concluded resulting in charges being filed against Mr. Aders. The matter is now in the hands of the prosecuting attorney. Any questions regarding the criminal allegations against Mr. Aders will need to be forwarded to the Muhlenberg County Sheriff's Department."
