Deputy exonerated by State Police

Wednesday, June 9, 2004

- Woman charged with False Reporting after State Police investigation

An investigation of allegations of sexual misconduct against a Clay County Deputy has come to an end and has exonerated the deputy.

According to Clay County Sheriff Rob Carter, on Feb. 28 at approximately 5 p.m., Clay County Sheriff's Deputy Jeff Maynard and Reserve Officer Mike Deakins stopped a car driven by Sandra L. Buczek, 37, of Clay City.

Buczek was charged with driving while suspended and released. On March 1, Sheriff Carter received a call from Buczek.

She stated that during the traffic stop, Maynard suggested that she expose her breasts to him in exchange for the driving while suspended ticket. She further indicated that when she declined, Maynard pushed her onto the ground with his clipboard and grabbed her breasts. She also alleged that Maynard was verbally abusive during the stop.

Sheriff Carter instructed Buczek to fill out a sworn affidavit in her own words of the incident and asked the Indiana State Police BCI to investigate the matter.

ISP Sgt. Darrell Boehmer was assigned to the investigation, which was completed in late March. During the investigation Boehmer encountered several inconsistencies with Buczek's account of the incident. It was determined that Buczek was being deceptive with respect to her allegations against Maynard.

Sandra L. Buczek has been charged with False Reporting, a Class B misdemeanor. A Class B misdemeanor is punishable by up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
