A Hancock County coroner, who was arrested in early May on an operating a vehicle while intoxicated charge, was sentenced Wednesday.
Tamara Vangundy entered a plea agreement and was sentenced to two years of probation, after being found guilty of official misconduct and OVWI.
Authorities said Vangundy arrived intoxicated to a death investigation in New Palestine, Ind. Deputies reported seeing Vangundy stagger from her vehicle and appearing to be impaired. The coroner was issued a portable breath test and had a .16 blood alcohol content level, said police.
Vangundy comes from a prominent family of city officials. Her brother is Greenfield Police Chief John Jester, her mother retired from the city council and her father was a high-ranking officer in the county’s fire department.
As part of the plea agreement, Vangundy must attend a victim impact panel meeting.
