Release from Emmitt Carney for Sheriff

Sheriff Layton Fails To Uphold Law: Media Uncovers 39 Instances
of Sex Offenders Living In Protected Areas
(Indianapolis) Yesterday, a WISHtv investigation uncovered two registered sex offenders living in protected areas (locations close to a school, day care or park). This is a blatant failure by Sheriff John Layton, as Indiana law requires the Sheriff to monitor sex offenders and make sure they do not reside in a protected area.
Details that came to light yesterday prove that the problem was far more widespread than originally reported.
Last night, Sheriff Layton admitted that he and his department had failed to uphold the law, and that they have now identified 39 offenders who are living within protected areas.
“The pattern of reactive management from the current Sheriff is troubling, and it is now putting our children at risk” said candidate for Sheriff Emmitt Carney. He continued, “This Sheriff only reacts to problems when the light of day is shined upon them. Employees with warrants, record levels of sexual assault at the jail, and now a failure to keep sexual predators away from the children of Marion County. This is a failure of leadership that cannot continue. As Sheriff, I’ll provide accountable leadership, gained over 25 years as a federal law enforcement officer, to restore faith in the office of Marion County Sheriff.”
