Tonya Ray

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY -- Two weeks after her guilty verdict, former McCracken County jailer Tonya Ray is asking the judge for a new trial.

The judge and Ray's attorneys are expected to meet in court Friday.

Ray is expected to be sentenced March 12 after a jury convicted her of lying under oath in a 2017 case involving a former jail employee.

Prosecutors are recommending a one year sentence.
