Decatur County Dispatcher facing allegations of Official Misconduct and related charges

Here’s what’s alleged in the Indiana State Police report

May 3, 2023, Detectives from the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post arrested a dispatcher from the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office on two felony charges related to the dispatcher accessing an internal law enforcement system and releasing case sensitive information to the public. The investigation began Wednesday when the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office contacted the Indiana State Police upon receiving information of the alleged offense.  During the investigation, it was determined that Heidi Miracle, age 42, Holton, Indiana, accessed the law enforcement system morning and had taken a recording of a video obtained during a criminal investigation.  She then allegedly shared the video she obtained to individuals outside of law enforcement via a messaging app.  Miracle also posted a recording on one of her social media pages. The investigation led to detectives arresting Miracle on felony charges involving allegations of Official Misconduct and Offense Against Intellectual Property. She was immediately booked into the Decatur County Jail on the charges pending an initial appearance in the Decatur County Circuit Court.                                     

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
