BICKNELL, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A Bicknell police officer will avoid jail time after being accused of sharing confidential information.
Kevin Carroll pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal recklessness Tuesday, and a felony charge of official misconduct was dismissed.
He was ordered to pay fines and court costs in the case.
In April of 2018, Carroll was arrested following an internal investigation into an allegation that he had shared sensitive information with a Daviess County resident.
The information was said to have compromised undercover drug operations and put several undercover officers at risk.
During the course of the investigation, Bicknell Police Chief Terry Stremming was also arrested or allegedly pushing an investigator with the prosecution’s office while trying to retrieve a laptop being used as evidence in Carroll’s case.
Stremming was officially charged with battery last week. His case is ongoing.
