Deputy accused of lying to grand jury

INDIANAPOLIS – Federal prosecutors say a grand jury has indicted a central Indiana reserve sheriff’s deputy for lying to it in connection with the investigation of another deputy later indicted on four counts of using excessive force.

The indictment unsealed Tuesday charges 24-year-old Andrew Fenwick of Greencastle with three counts of false declarations to a grand jury.

Fenwick testified to the grand jury March 4 in connection with an investigation into Putnam County Sheriff’s Deputy Terry Joe Smith. Smith was indicted days later and faces an April 28 trial in federal court.

If convicted, Fenwick faces up to five years on each of the three counts. It wasn’t clear whether he has an attorney.

Fenwick is the son of Putnam County Sheriff Steve Fenwick.
