Indiana Deputy Sentenced in Child Seduction Case

Daniel Greer

PRINCETON, Ind. — A Gibson County Sheriff’s deputy convicted of child seduction will face three years in prison, a judge ruled this week.

Daniel Greer, 30, was sentenced Wednesday after he was found guilty at trial January 11 in Gibson County.

He plans to appeal the conviction, according to court records.

Gibson Superior Court Judge Robert Krieg ordered Greer not to have contact with the victim or their family and to register as a sex offender.

Greer was arrested in July and booked into the Knox County Jail after accusations he had sexual contact with two underage boys. He posted bond the same day he was taken into custody, jail staff said at the time.

As a sheriff’s deputy, Greer was a school resource officer at South Gibson School Corporation until resigning from the school post in May. That was the month before Indiana State Police began investigating him at the request of the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators believed Greer met with each of the boys separately while off-duty and off school grounds. According to a probable cause affidavit, he knew at least one of the victims since the boy was in middle school, and met the other victim through the first boy.

Under Indiana law, a child seduction charge indicates a suspect had undue influence over a victim who was 16 or older but younger than 18. One subsection of the law applies to a law enforcement officer who would have contact with the teenager during the officer’s official duties.

Greer has two felony charges still pending in Gibson County Superior Court under a different case. Superior Court Judge Robert Krieg is overseeing that case as well.

He’s facing a charge of child seduction as a level 5 felony and obstruction of justice as a level 6 felony in the pending case. The most recent hearing was scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday and no new hearings have been scheduled, according to electronic court records.

The obstruction of justice charges stems from an encounter where Greer allegedly listened in on a call between one of the alleged victims and a detective investigating Greer.
