Former Deputy Russell Burton Accused of Engaging in Sexual Acts with Daughter

A former Kentucky sheriff's deputy accused of engaging in sexual acts with his daughter pleads not guilty to the charges.

Forty-four-year-old Russell Burton appeared in Pulaski Circuit Court Thursday.

In October, Burton was indicted on ten counts of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of sodomy, and turned himself in.

The Commonwealth Journal reports the complaint also alleges the girl was under 12 years old when the incidents took place.

Burton retired from the Pulaski County Sheriff's Department three years ago.
