Resident questions trust in sheriff’s department

To the Editor:

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department thinks they are above the law and do whatever they want without being punished by law.

I know people may not like this but put yourself in my shoes. I was convicted as a sex offender in another state then moved back to Indiana to Marion County. They did all the paperwork right and on computer and six months later when I moved to Putnam County it started changing to violent child molester.

In the state I was convicted in it was as a non-violent, zero-risk factor with no restrictions.

Ex-sheriff Fenwick changed all without notifying me or having a judge sign and agree to any change. I sent a certified letter to Fenwick and the one thing he did went from three months back to yearly.

Now Stockton took over and I sent a certified letter to him to and got no response. Lt. Moore sent letter saying never mind your conviction just show up to your yearly.

I filed a lawsuit and Stockton states he knows nothing and never got a certified letter, but I contacted mail fraud investigator stated certified letter was sent.

It is time for a change. The prosecutor needs to get involved and the state needs to take over. FBI is looking at targeting charges. How many other sheriff’s departments do something like this in the State of Indiana and the U.S.

It’s time for change to have real people at the sheriff’s department we can trust.
