2021-2022 Ghost Employment
From November 2021 to March 2022, Donald McQuarie and William Fackelman recorded that they had worked for the department when they were actually working secondary jobs.
On March 7, 2022, a supervisor attempted to find available officers to respond to a crash, and found Fackelman at his off-duty job. Additional investigation revealed McQuarie was double-paid for 25 hours.
The Indiana State Police investigated and submitted their report to the County Prosecutor.
McQuarie and Fackelman were charged with ghost employment, a Level 6 felony, and face six months to 2.5 years in jail. Indiana judges can treat the charge as a misdemeanor, which might not involve jail time if convicted.
