39 year old T.J. Smith, a former Putnam Couty Sheriff’s Deputy and former Greencastle City Councilman, is still facing the legal action. In a second appeal filed on Friday, U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler is set to appeal the 14 month sentence handed down to Smith in December 2014, and was appealed once in April of this year. Smith was charged with Deprivation of Cival rights. The Judge kept his original ruling which prompted prosecutors to as to appeal a second time. No date has been set for the hearing on the second appeal.
