A former sheriff’s captain in Elkhart charged with lying during an investigation into alleged wage theft by employees he supervised has pleaded guilty in the case. Jim Bradberry, 50, entered the plea to one of three counts of false informing.
Prosecutors charged 49-year-old James Bradberry on Tuesday with three counts of false informing. Prosecutors allege the former captain concealed information about Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department employees who are accused of collecting $45,000 for hours they didn’t work between 2014 and 2017.
The Indiana Supreme Court issued three orders Tuesday suspending or extending the suspensions of three lawyers found to be noncooperative with the Disciplinary Commission’s investigation of grievances against them.
Indiana Court of Appeals
Bennie Hale v. Keith Butts
Miscellaneous. Affirms the denial of Bennie Hale’s petition for a writ of habeas corpus. Finds Hale’s petition was correctly captioned as a petition for writ of habeas corpus. Also finds the Henry Circuit Court did not err in denying the petition, as Hale’s parole was not discharged or expired, and Hale was not entitled to credit for time served in Florida on unrelated charges.
