Testimony continues in former deputy's trial

Former Kershaw County deputy Oddie Tribble didn’t take the witness stand Thursday afternoon in Courtroom II of the Matthew J. Perry Jr. Courthouse in Columbia, but his voice was heard nonetheless. During cross examination of a S.C. Law Enforcement Division (SLED) agent at Tribble’s federal trial on violating a Camden man’s civil rights, defense attorneys had that agent’s video-recorded interrogation of Tribble played for the jury. On that recording, Tribble acknowledges striking Charles Shelley several times in the sally port of the Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) on the evening of Aug. 5, 2010, but claimed not to recall doing so 27 times.
