Former KSP Trooper Stratford Young was indicted on one count of rape third-degree and two counts of third-degree sodomy.

"It's disappointing for several families, for our agency, for the state of Kentucky," said Trooper Jeff Gregory.

Former Brandenburg police Officer Todd Matti was indicted on two counts of third-degree sodomy.

Special prosecutor Tom Wine told Judge Bruce Butler they chose not to present indictments against other individuals, but did not say why.

Both men entered not guilty pleas at their arraignments Monday afternoon.

"We protect and we serve, to the best of our ability, and at times things happen that may not represent our agency the way we want it represented," said Gregory.
