6/11/2018 - State v. Tawna Chauncy (formerly Swango) results in 16 year sentence - Click here to print this information

Tawna Chauncy was sentenced on June 11, 2018 in the Decatur Circuit Court to a sentence of 16 years.

Tawna Chauncy pleaded guilty to the crimes of Dealing in Methamphetamine as a Level 3 Felony, and Possession of Methamphetamine before Superior Court Judge Matthew Bailey on May 14, 2018. The plea agreement between the
parties called for the Court to sentence her to 16 years in the Indiana Department of Correction all eligible for Purposeful Incarceration. Under Indiana law, offenders convicted of a Level 3 felony serve 75% of their sentence with good behavior in prison.

Decatur County Prosecuting Attorney Nate Harter wants to formally recognize the law enforcement officers involved in the case: GPD Chief Brendan Bridges, Det. Mike McNealy, Det. Steve Barnes, GPD S. Hershberger,
GPD M. Tuttle and K9 partner Kato. The hard work of these law enforcement officers provided a strong case to pursue the charge against Chauncy.

Said Harter, "Thanks to hard work of our officers, we were able to remove an outlet for drugs from our streets. The negative impact created in our community by these drugs is obvious and needs to be handled carefully. Not only were we able to make our community safer with this sentence, but by placing Chauncy in the Purposeful Incarceration program, we were also able to provide an avenue for help with her substance abuse problem."
