Sheriff Corman Tribute, flags at half-staff

Jessamine County has lost a friend, colleague and Sheriff in Kevin Corman on Sunday, May 22.  Sheriff Corman served the community of Jessamine County dutifully for almost 20 years, first as a Deputy and then as Sheriff. Thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Kevin Corman, and to the Jessamine County Sheriff’s office, many of which have served alongside Sheriff Corman for years. We are asking that all flags throughout the county be flown at half-staff for the next three days in honor and memory of Sheriff Kevin Corman.
