A Wood County Sheriff’s deputy has been indicted with one count of sexual battery and two counts of gross sexual imposition.
According to the indictment, Dusty G. Garwood, 50, Bradner, is alleged to have engaged in sexual activity with a female inmate.

Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said this morning that Garwood, who has been on staff since 1997, had resigned several months ago. Garwood regularly transported inmates to and from the Wood County Courthouse.
According to Paul Dobson, the Wood County prosecutor, who is personally taking the lead in this case, the two GSI counts are charged in the alternative, allowing the court or a jury to decide which statute is more appropriate. The sexual battery charge alleges actual intercourse with the same victim.
Dobson said the inmate was not physically in the jail at the time, but had been released and was on electronic home monitoring at the time as her criminal case was ongoing.

TOLEDO - Was he simply a survivalist, or a man plotting a race war?
This was the much-debated question Thursday at the sentencing of Richard Schmidt.
Schmidt, 47, Toledo, was sentenced to 71 months - just under six years - on federal counterfeiting and firearms charges in the court of U.S. District Court Judge Jack Zouhary Thursday afternoon. He had owned the Spindletop Sports Zone store at the Woodland Mall in Bowling Green.
"You say you're a collector. The government says you're a soldier," said Zouhary prior to pronouncing sentence.
Schmidt pleaded guilty in July to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a felon in possession of body armor, and trafficking in counterfeit goods.

The semester is winding down, and for students it's crunch time, and for the students in the Math Emporium on the second floor of Olscamp Hall it's number crunching time.
During a recent visit to the Bowling Green State University classroom, about 50 students were spread throughout the room sitting, their gazes fixed on the screens of MacAir computers.
This is the Math Emporium where students study math from beginning algebra through Algebra II, using software customized by their teachers, that allows students to move at their own pace. It's material they probably were exposed to in high school.
The Math Emporium is "an innovative teaching space," David Meel, who directs the program, told the BGSU Faculty Senate earlier this month.

MILLBURY - A community garden started this summer wasn't squashed, but didn't exactly grow either.
At Tuesday's meeting, Lake Township Trustee Chairwoman Melanie Bowen said the garden, which was planted on land donated by the township, was abandoned by its two organizers about mid-summer.
"I do think it was a good project. I don't know if we're going to do it again," said Bowen, who ended up overseeing the garden. "The project needs someone who can stay with it."
The garden did net five truckloads of produce, which was donated to the Feed Your Neighbors program, held monthly out of the Walbridge fire station.
The food pantry patrons enjoyed squash, zucchini, corn, tomatoes, peppers and cabbage, plus herbs like basil, oregano and thyme.
