Case against Racer
will get new judge

MURRAY(AP) — The judge overseeing the case against a Murray State basketball player who pleaded guilty to hitting a couple with his car has recused himself.
The Paducah Sun (http://bit.ly/UwUnZa) reports that Murray State player Zaveral “Zay” Jackson was supposed to be sentenced on Monday, but instead Calloway Circuit Judge Dennis Foust continued the hearing until next month so that a special judge could be appointed.
Jackson entered a plea this month to two counts of wanton endangerment.
Foust said he decided to recuse himself after a member of the media questioned him on whether he has a bias in the case. He says he does not, but he wanted to remove any appearance of bias.
