There is a part of the complaint which has been ignored in most of the local press accounts, but which is included in today's Star story involving Sheriff Frank Anderson's office. These allegations are particularly pertinent because Sheriff Anderson was in charge of the Indianapolis U.S. Marshal's office prior to being elected as Marion Co. Sheriff. Check this out:
In an affidavit accompanying his complaint, Wojdylo says that in May 2006, he notified his superiors about poor care of federal prisoners at the Marion County Jail and that, soon after, a package was inadvertently delivered to him from the Marion County sheriff's office.
In the box, addressed to his superior, were his reports about the jail, along with four tickets to the Indianapolis 500, four tickets to an accompanying race event and other passes with an estimated value of $630.
It was, Wojdylo believes, an attempt to bribe his supervisor into silencing Wojdylo's concerns about the treatment of federal prisoners.
Kevin Murray, counsel to Marion County Sheriff Frank Anderson, said Wojdylo's claims were investigated when they were made.
"As far as I know, all of his allegations have been reviewed by the Inspector General's Office of the U.S. Marshals, and nothing has been substantiated," Murray said.
