No Indictment for Deputy Involved in Dog Shooting

A grand jury did not indict the Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy involved in the shooting of two dogs earlier this year.

According to Washington County State’s Attorney, the grand jury returned a no true bill against on the case brought against Deputy Craig McDaniel Monday.

“Basically, the grand jury found no probable cause for the charges presented,” Bronke explained.

The case presented to the grand jury was based on the results of an investigation performed by the Perry County Sheriff’s Department. The PCSD handled the investigation to ensure impartiality.

Washington County Sheriff Len Campbell said that Deputy McDaniel is still on paid administrative leave.

“He was not criminally charged, but Deputy McDaniel remains on administrative leave pending the results of an internal investigation,” Campbell said.

A post on Facebook by Jennifer Akers, a neighbor of McDaniel, alleges that the deputy shot her two dogs after they slipped their collars during the weekend of January 4-5.

McDaniel was placed on administrative leave during the course of PCSD’s investigation into the matter.

    We knew how this was going to go the DA could have did a better job but we know they all lie and cover up each other’s crimes . I hope karma finds this cop and does the sample to him . A scare cop with a gun is more dangerous then any dog . I wonder how much was in the dog shooting pool that week. The DA is just as crooked
