INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) – Within the hour, a federal judge made her decision on where Frank Shahadey will spend his time while awaiting trial.

Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson has revoked a previous ruling by a judge magistrate and has ordered Shahadey held in a correctional facility as he awaits trial.

This means he will not be placed on home incarceration.

On Wednesday in federal court, the U.S. Attorney’s Office revealed new evidence in this case.

Deputy U.S. Attorney Tiffany McCormick told the judge about more allegations of Shahadey’s misconduct.

This includes lying about how his knee was injured.


Shahadey claimed it was in the line of duty.

The government said that prompted him to file a false workman’s compensation claim the government said he used to gain his release.

The government also detailed other new misconduct allegations.

There are currently no pending dates for either Shahadey or Franklin Fennell, who was released last week.
