NEW ALBANY, Ind. – A southern Indiana sheriff has been arrested in a prostitution investigation just weeks after a suburban Indianapolis sheriff resigned over his own relationship with a prostitute.
Authorities declined to say at a Tuesday news conference whether the cases are linked. But a person with knowledge of the connection told The Associated Press they involve the same woman. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the connection hasn't been made public.
Authorities wouldn't say if the woman is cooperating with law enforcement.
An indictment alleges Clark County Sheriff Daniel Rodden gave the woman a uniform so she could get a government discount at a Kentucky hotel and paid her $300 for a sex act.
Rodden denies the allegations.
Boone County Sheriff Ken Campbell resigned in June amid a prostitution investigation.
