Bryan Joseph Durman

Police Officer Bryan Durman was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver at the intersection of North Limestone Street and Alabama Avenue.

He was investigating a noise ordinance violation at approximately 10:00 pm. He had responded to the location to locate the driver of a vehicle that had been playing music too loudly when he was struck.

On June 30th, 2011, the subject who struck Officer Durman was convicted of second-degree manslaughter and numerous other charges in connection with Officer Durman's death. He was subsequently sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Officer Durman was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Police Department for 2-1/2 years. He is survived by his wife and son.

I regret to announce that Glenn Doneghy was released from prison last July. He was denied parole last year and was originally scheduled for another hearing in January 2020.

In my opinion the decision to release Doneghy after he served only 9 1/2 years of his 20 year sentence is a major injustice to Officer Durman. I do not believe much good will come from releasing an inmate who has not served at least half of his sentence. Hopefully, Glenn Doneghy has become a better man and never hurts anyone ever again.

My prayers be with Officer Bryan Durman's friends and family.
