One of the four former Crofton firefighters charged with arson had a request to work with a traveling rodeo while out on bond denied Wednesday morning in Christian Circuit Court.
Jason Holland represents 19-year old Dylan Hodge and filed a motion to modify bond conditions. He says Hodge receives compensation from sponsors to participate in rodeos across western Kentucky and into Missouri and he wanted permission from the court to make the work trips.
Hodge, Jeremy Marlar, Glen McGee are Dakota Oglesby are accused of setting fire to a vacant building on East Main Street in august of last year. Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Maggie Gigandet told Judge John Atkins the owner of that building isn’t sure Hodge appreciates the seriousness of his alleged actions.
Judge John Atkins denied Holland’s motion, deciding to stick with the current conditions that Hodge must remain in Christian County.
Hodge was not present, as Holland said he was on his way to the justice center when the hearing began. Trial for all four suspects is scheduled for August 27.
