A former Cookeville Police officer will be allowed to contact a victim he allegedly assaulted last December.
Judge Gary McKenzie modified bond for Kyle Farley on Thursday, allowing peaceful contact between the former officer and his wife.
The 29-year-old Farley faces aggravated assault and domestic assault charges for allegedly striking his wife during an argument at their home. Farley also used his CPD-issued taser on the woman, according to an arrest warrant.
Prosecutors and Farley’s legal team have apparently come to terms on a plea deal. McKenzie said Thursday he was shown a deal that would result in Farley serving probation.
McKenzie said he would take the deal under advisement until an August court date.
