Fired Hamilton County magistrate judge pleads not guilty to meth charge

A fired suburban Indianapolis magistrate judge has pleaded not guilty to felony possession of methamphetamine.

Fifty-year-old former Hamilton County Magistrate Judge William Greenaway entered the plea Wednesday in Hamilton Circuit Court. He was charged in March after allegedly buying methamphetamine from a state police informant in a Walmart parking lot in Noblesville.

The Indianapolis Star reported Greenaway is free on bond.

The day after being charged, Greenaway was suspended by the Indiana Supreme Court and fired by the judges of Hamilton County. The Indiana Supreme Court order issued March 26 suspends Greenaway with pay per Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 25(V)(A).

Greenaway, who was admitted to practice in 1996 and had no prior attorney discipline history, had been a magistrate judge for eight years.
