In March 2022, Wood was indicted for giving a false statement to a peace officer during the investigation. Wood could face up to six months in jail on the misdemeanor charge.[4]

On May 20, 2022, the charges were dismissed. The District Attorney stated that the "interest of justice would be best served by protecting those future cases on behalf of victims and agreeing to dismiss the charges in exchange for resignation from the Van Zandt County Sheriff's Office".[5]
