Putnam County deputy charged with lying to grand jury

INDIANAPOLIS — Federal prosecutors say a grand jury has charged a central Indiana reserve sheriff's deputy with lying to it in connection with the investigation of another deputy.

The indictment unsealed Tuesday charges 24-year-old Andrew Fenwick of Greencastle with three counts of false declarations to a grand jury. Each charge carries a penalty of up to five years imprisonment.

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 on four counts of using excessive force and faces an April 28 trial in federal court.

Fenwick has no published home telephone number and couldn't be reached for comment. His father, Putnam County Sheriff Steve Fenwick, couldn't be reach for comment at his office or his home.
