ELKHART — Police Chief Kris Seymore has requested the termination of Lt. Carlton Conway due to his role in the wrongful conviction of a man who spent 16 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.

On April 28, the Indiana Court of Appeals described some of the testimony of Conway in the case against Andrew Royer as perjury, which is a felony.

No problem, no worries here…he will be allowed to retire or leave with full pension or work on another PD in a nearby city…all while the family sues and the tax payers are on the hook…time to make police pensions pay for the police mistakes and not the tax payers…enough is enough…I hope the truth does an article on total cost the tax payers have paid due to police lawsuits….
