JACKSBORO (WATE) – Convicted Campbell County school shooter Kenny Bartley was released from jail Friday after serving 75 percent of his sentence for probation violation.
Bartley was sentenced in April to 10 months in jail for several probation violations. Campbell County Chief Deputy Aaron Evans says he was released from jail on time served in 2014 after a jury found him guilty of reckless homicide in the 2005 school shootings.
Later that year, Bartley was arrested again for an assault against his father. He was on probation for that charge when he picked up another assault charge against his mother. Bartley was given more probation, but was to live with his former counselor Erin Tepaske in Virginia, get treatment, and wear a SCRAM monitoring bracelet.
A judge found he failed to give the court his current physical address, failed to remain at the resident agreed upon in the plea, failed to notify his probation officer when he moved and there were multiple violations reported by the SCRAM bracelet.
