|Shauna turns herself in following arrest warrant|
Shauna Hawkins, ex- Cheif Matron was released on bond after turning herself in shortly following the release of her warrant for Sexual Misconduct. The Times Mail Reports "Former Lawrence County Police Department Chief Matron Shauna Hawkins was arrested Monday on a charge of sexual misconduct involving a 35-year-old jailed man. Hawkins, 32, 502 Younger Road, allegedly twice performed oral sex on Kevin Edwards of Columbus at the jail in 2006. She is facing a Class D felony. She was booked into the Lawrence County jail at 3 p.m. Monday. She was immediately released on $500 bond. Edwards was being held at the jail during September and October on a local charge of failing to appear in court, for an original charge of public intoxication. According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Lawrence Superior Court II, Hawkins reportedly had a sexual relationship with Edwards at the jail. The paperwork cites information from jail officers and Edwards in making the allegation. One jail officer “stated that sometime during August 2006 while he was looking through a window in the kitchen area, he observed Kevin Edwards standing up in front of the dishwasher,” the affidavit stated. “(The jailer) stated that shortly after observing Edwards, Shauna Hawkins rose up from a kneeling position directly in front of Edwards.” Another jail officer told officials that, before Edwards was released from jail, he admitted Hawkins performed oral sex on him. Edwards was a trusty at the jail. A trusty is considered a trustworthy inmate, is often assigned chores and has limited freedom at the jail. Edwards also spoke with investigators. According to the affidavit, Edwards said he and Hawkins had a sexual relationship while he was in the jail. He said Hawkins twice performed oral sex on him. Hawkins was named chief matron in February 2006, after the former chief matron, Sandy Hawkins, died. Sandy Hawkins was the wife of Kent Hawkins, who was sheriff at the time. Shauna Hawkins is married to the son of Kent and Sandy Hawkins. Before working at the department, Shauna Hawkins was a stay-at-home mom. Her duties at the jail included ordering food, taking inventory, ordering cleaning supplies, planning meals, overseeing kitchen staff and overseeing the cleanliness of the administration side of the building. She resigned in the late fall of 2006. At that time, Kent Hawkins said Shauna Hawkins left the department to spend more time with her family. “She did a great job here,” Kent Hawkins said at the time of her resignation. “She really was impacted with how much her family was suffering (because of her duties at the jail).” Meanwhile, Indiana State Police confirmed they have completed their investigation regarding Hawkins’ administration. Police said the matter has been turned over to the Lawrence County Prosecutor’s office." See the story in Todays edition of The Times Mail or at tmnews.com
|Hawkins Finally Investigated|
|Well, its official, Shauna Hawkins has a warrant for her arrest for "Sexual Misconduct" a Class D Felony sources tell LCPD Times. "She has until this evening to turn herself in" said one Lawrence County official. While her stay may not be long at first (She will most likely post bond), she will have to appear in front of a judge to explain her conduct as chief matron during her time acting in that posistion in 2006. Things arn't looking good for her father in-law either. Rumor has it that he is in the hospital at this time. He was sopposedly placed on suicide watch after a couple of things started happening with his family. See top rumors above in the news flasher for more info... nbsp;||Animal Control Officer gone following crazy chase|
|A while back, now Ex- Animal Control Officer Rolland Stockton was released from his duties following a crazy chase through a neighborhood. "All I know is I saw this rather large object running through the addition. It was scary.. It sounded like a wild animal, yelling "Freeze!! Animal cop!! Stop our I'll shoot!!!" then, I made out the mad man. It was the Lawrence County animal control officer. He started shooting, and bullets started flying..." said one neighbor while giving a statement about the incident. Stockton appearantly shot at the animal several times while running around the additon. When Stockton was asked about the incident, he stated "Well the damn thing got away from me, but I do have good news though... I just cost the county big money by shooting out some residences windows!" Stockton was released from his duties after a sort investigation was completed. Following several complaints from witnesses, it was determind that the "animal" he was chasing turned out to be no more than his wiskey bottle rolling down the street.
|LCPD Times hasn't been updated since the end of Nov, but do to new news its time to start reporting agian. Hawkins is being investigated over all the stuff that happend while he was in office, and its about time. State Police are conducting an investigation that will take a few more weeks to complete says the Times Mail. From inside sources, apparently Mike Terry and John Potter have been let go for covering up Hawkins mishaps while he was in office. Since leaving office, Hawkins attempted to draw unemployment from the county. "I'm glad we finally got a trustworthy Sheriff that is cleaning house" said one department official. We will be reporting on other stories as info becomes availible. Letter to the editor is functional agian so if you have any comments, questions or concerns, send us a note.|
|Ex-Dispatchers not allowed in Dispatch|
|Last week, Sheriff Hawkins
announced that former Dispatchers Bridget Walls and Derek Blackwell are
no longer allowed in dispatch. "I took a coat I had bought
while employed at the department to one of the dispatchers that the
department wouldn't buy a coat for..." says Blackwell, "I
guess they thought it would hurt my feelings if they said I wasn't
allowed in there anymore. It is kind of funny though, I was told
that I would be allowed in there from Chief Terry when they forced me to
resign after making a LCPD Times article about the former matron and now
I'm not. Guess that's part of making promises and not keeping
them, the administration seems to be pretty good at that."
Blackwell is expected to leave the area soon do to joining the military
and will not sweat the loss.

|LCPD Employees ready to get rid of Hawkins|
On November 7th, Lawrence County Sheriff Department employees learnt who the new sheriff will be beginning on January 1st. "I'm just glad that Hawkins is going to be out of office. Craig will actually run the department the way it should be..." one officer told reporters, and I bet he wouldn't go on vacation with his wife's cousin 3 weeks after his wife died ..." It is rumored that Sheriff Hawkins had taken county money to go on a trip to Florida with his new wife. Craig vows to be a working Sheriff once in office, something the department hasn't seen in nearly eight years. "It is really sad to think that Hawkins has been in office for eight years," a citizen told LCPD Times, "Its kind of funny that I have called to talk to him several times, and he hasn't been in his office or returned my calls." If only Craig knew what he was getting himself into, he wouldn't have ran for Sheriff. Hawkins has set an example of corruption within the department by attempting to cover up mistakes that he and his family have made while working at the Department.

Acting Chief Terry completes physical readiness training before returning to the road as a Captain. "Its been really tough, but I've managed to make myself run 10 yards!" Terry admits. Wanted: Twinkies, send them to 1420 I Street Bedford, Indiana 47421- ATTN: Capt. Mike Terry
The Matron investigation from within the Department is finished, leaving two un-employed. Chief Matron Hawkins was forced to resign after making out with a inmate worker in the jail freezer. “LCPD Times reported on the incident, so I felt I couldn’t cover up her actions like I planed.” Said Sheriff Hawkins, “Its just a really bad deal, I had to have Chief Terry force the editor of LCPD Times to resign too, I just hope he doesn’t sue us for a violation of his 1st amendment rights.” LCPD Times has caught wind of maybe an investigation still being conducted out from an outside department; however, we are unable to confirm that for sure. It is expected that several other county residents will know of the cover up soon do to the Times Mail receiving a copy of LCPD Times. We can’t wait to read it!

this shit's really funny...keep it coming
---Editors remarks: I agree, it really is funny. It is also sad that the Sheriff, the one who is elected to uphold laws, would cover up the actions of the matron. Fun Fact: If another Corrections Officer would have done the actions of the matron they would get a "C" Felony. Anyone Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that since the Sheriff is "aiding" in keeping her from getting caught, he would also be facing charges.

---Editors Remarks: I was wondering why no one had asked. Seems that the administration hasn't had to deal with the inmates name being released yet, so, here it goes... Kevin Edwards is the name of the trustee that got himself a little tongue action in the freezer.
** We are still waiting to here from you. ATTN SHERIFF HAWKINS: Your not left out either, you can email your side of the story and have it posted as well... Maybe you'll come clean and apologize for your actions... We will be waiting for an email**
