HENRY COUNTY — The May term of the Henry County Grand Jury recently indicted 60-year-old Cindy Smith for making false statements that she was sexually assaulted by a Henry County Police Department officer.
On the night of Jan. 3, Henry County police officers were dispatched to the Birch Creek Circle area in McDonough.
The calls reported Smith knocking on the doors of several homes and being involved in a domestic dispute.
As a result of the investigation, Smith was arrested by an officer for disorderly conduct-public intoxication.
Smith was transported to the Henry County Jail. Upon arrival, Smith reported that the officer had sexually assaulted her. Smith was immediately taken for a medical examination and the police department requested assistance from the GBI.
During the case, witnesses were interviewed and law enforcement video was reviewed. The officer’s body-camera and in-car camera recorded the entire contact with Smith, including her transport and admission into the jail.
Smith was charged with two felony counts of false statements and writings. Smith is being held in the Henry County Jail.
