LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The former assistant athletic director and softball coach at Fairdale High School went before a judge Tuesday morning and has been granted shock probation.
Adrian Adkins is currently serving time after he was convicted in connection to a crash back in April of 2012. The accident happened on I-265 just east of New Cut Road. Police said a LMPD officer was working a separate accident when Adkins drove through the scene and hit one of the wrecked cars. That car then hit the officer and police said Adkins left the scene.
Adkins began serving his sentence in June, but was back in court where he asked a Jefferson County judge to release him early from prison. He said the time he has already served has been enough of a shock to set him on the right path.
