It aint’ over till its over. And sometimes it isn’t over then.
Kenneth S. Bartley knows that all too well.
In April 2007, the then teenager pled guilty to killing Campbell County High School Assistant Principal Ken Bruce and wounding CCHS Principal Gary Seale and Jim Pierce, CCHS assistant principal. As per the plea, Bartley was sentenced to 45 years in prison.
Within days of the plea being inked, Bartley was asking for a do over. And he has continued to ask for that all the way to the state supreme court and back.
