Ex-Clark Sheriff Danny Rodden Gets Fine, Probation over Prostitution Case

A retired southern Indiana sheriff will pay $4,000 in fines and serve two years' probation after admitting he lied to federal investigators about his relationship with a prostitute.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt imposed the sentence on former Clark County Sheriff Danny Rodden as part of a plea agreement Monday.

The News and Tribune reports Rodden pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements to federal investigators. Five other counts were dismissed.

Rodden fought back tears as he apologized for his actions.

Rodden was placed on administrative leave in July following his arrest on charges of lying to the FBI and encouraging a prostitute to hide evidence of a 2013 encounter at a Louisville hotel in which he allegedly paid her $300 for oral sex.
