Former Alabama Trooper Admits Assaulting Woman

MARION, Ala. (AP) -- A fired Alabama state trooper has pleaded
guilty to the second-degree assault of a woman during a traffic
stop in Perry County.

Former trooper Kerry Horton of Selma entered the plea Tuesday in
Marion.

He's scheduled to report to the Dallas County Jail next
month to begin a seven-month sentence. That will be followed by
five years on probation.

The state Department of Public Safety fired Horton in 2008 after
a young woman accused him of driving her to a remote location and
fondling her while she tried to push him away.

District Attorney Michael Jackson said the case shows nobody is
above the law.
