INDIANAPOLIS (May 9, 2014) – A jury handed down a guilty verdict for a former Marion County sheriff’s deputy accused of beating up an arrestee.
Jurors found David Carrico guilty of official misconduct, battery and false reporting in connection with a May 2012 assault on a handcuffed inmate at the Marion County Jail.
The incident happened on May 20, 2012, while the man was being processed. Security camera footage showed the assault in a transportation bay near the jail’s receiving room. The man was treated at a hospital for a broken nose as well as a contusion to the right eye and abrasions. He filed a complaint after the incident.
The sheriff’s office terminated Carrico. The case was turned over to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office in June 2012.
Sentencing is scheduled for June 27, 2014.
According to the prosecutor’s office, a separate case is pending stemming from five additional incidents between 2010 and 2012. In those incidents, Carrico is accused of official misconduct, battery and other charges regarding his treatment of other arrestees.
