Former South Marshall Middle School principal Kent Barlow's Attorneys have filed a motion seeking shock probation in lieu of his 10-year prison sentence.

The West Kentucky Star reports attorneys representing Barlow filed the motion before Judge Dennis Foust yesterday. Barlow pleaded guilty in August to charges of unlawful imprisonment, wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault related to a March incident in which he assaulted and threatened a woman. Barlow was sentenced to 10 years in prison on August 31st. He became eligible for shock probation after serving part of his sentence. Barlow will be eligible for parole after serving two years of his sentence if shock probation is denied.
