INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Marion County Sheriff's deputies arrested one of their own after an undercover operation. Now, a deputy who worked as a guard at the jail, is himself behind bars.
"You know there is 775 deputy sheriff's in this department full time police officers and when one gets out of line the other 774 don't care for it," Col. John Layton with the Marion Co. Sheriff's Department said,
When women complained about that one sheriff's deputy, Paul Wagner, fellow deputies began a month long investigation.
Wagner worked part-time security at a Speedway gas station on the city's east side. Investigators say female Speedway customers complained Wagner tried to solicit them for sex on several occassions. Detectives worked with one of the women who complained.
"He had known her from being in there before actually she was the complainant to the Sheriff's department, one of the main complainants and upon the two of them having conversation he offered goods for sexual favors," explained Col. Layton.
Those goods were a pack of cigarettes and a soft drink.
"Its very unfortunate because he was in the sheriff's uniform which that is the reason there is a charge of official misconduct besides the patronizing a prostitute," Col. Layton said.
Paul Wagner is now suspended without pay. Next week he faces a court appearance and an internal investigation.
Its Indys east side, hard to believe no one turned him down.
A pack of Cigaretts and a soft drink, my god, I have to see a picture of this girl.
You pays your dollar, you takes your chance............You gets what you pays for............STDs, HIV, cooties..........
I was at Fultons fish market in Tampa Florida and a girl approached me for money for sex. I politely declined and she said she just wanted “pocket change” for a hummer so she could get some cigarettes.
Reports are that the woman merely snickered at the offer of a candy bar.
You should have directed her to the Speedway station at 5100 East Washington. She could have gotten a pack of cigarettes AND a Coke. Maybe even a Hershey bar if the sheriff was feeling generous that day.
He should have offered her a O’Henery bar. There’s a homerun in every package.
Hey, I live on Indy’s east side, and if it weren’t for all the lowlifes moving into the area, it wouldn’t be half bad
Col. Layton needs to learn English.
She night not have Snickered if he’d shown her his Big Hunk....
Not likely. Either this guy was universally hated by other deputies, was about to be outed by the press or another law enforcement agency was going to come down on him.
"Buy me some Skittles, and I'm yours forever !"
