Bartholomew County Sheriff Suspended For Misusing Power

Last updated on Tuesday, February 17, 2009

(COLUMBUS) - A Bartholomew County Sheriff’s deputy is suspended without pay for misusing his official powers to obtain records at a local insurance company.

Authorities say Robbie Amos, a 34-year veteran of the force, served a subpoena while on duty to get documents for a family member who was planning to file a civil court case.

A subpoena is a document commanding a person to produce in court certain designated documents or evidence.

The case was filed nine days after Amos obtained the documents.
