Probus faces judge, requests probation

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The man charged with shooting Shively Police Officer Wes Singleton in 2016 stood before a judge today, requesting he spend the rest of his sentence out of jail and under probation.

Kenneth Probus shot the officer on January 8, 2016, while he was serving a drug warrant.

Probus claims he did not know it was police entering his home, thinking instead it was an intruder.

The judge may force him to serve longer because of his high probability to attain parole, but also said Probus was a good case for shock probation.

The judge is expected to release her ruling on the shock probation next week.
