The trial of a former Campbell County Deputy is underway.
Daniel Ward is facing 10 counts of aggravated sexual battery, two counts of attempted sexual battery, two counts of attempted sexual battery by an authority figure and two counts of sexual battery.
The case has run the legal gamut to date.
From nearly accepting a plea to being placed in jail because his attorney wasn’t prepared for trial, Ward’s case has lingered in the judicial system.
But on Wednesday the proceedings began.
