Pittsylvania County sergeant on administrative leave
WDBJ7
January 29, 2008
A seargent with the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office is on administrative leave tonight. Kevin Wayne Barker lives in the Brights community of Pittsylvania County, and he has been with the department since 1996. He's charged with one count of assault and battery on a family member. Barker was in court Tuesday and released on a $500 bond.

Submitted update:

The Charge against Sgt. Kevin Barker were dismissed in J & D Court due to the fact that his wife exercised her 5th amnd. right not to testify. She choose to do that strictly due to the fact that on March 5, 5 weeks after the assult against his wife, Sgt. Barker filed charges against his wife for trespassing and Assult and Battery. His mistress, also a Pittsylvania County Deputy, also filed charges with him for two additional counts. A deal was offered by Sgt. Barker's Attorney, Glenn Berger, that his client and his mistress would not testify against his wife if she would choose not to testify against him. All four charges were false in nature and both oficers knew what information was needed to obtain the warents against his wife. This case proves that even when family members try to do the right thing that an officer can/will use their position for their own personal gain and that this is allowed by law enforcement agencies. Sgt. Barker and his mistress were fired from the Pittsylvania County Sheriff's Office in Feb.for having the affair. Barker has been interviewed and has accepted a position at a local regional jail authority.
