Former deputy sentenced to prison in drug case PDF Print E-mail

Eighth Judicial District Judge Eddie Northcutt sentenced a former Hopkins County sheriff's investigator to serve 15 months in prison as the result of a plea bargain arrangement Thursday morning. Daniel Madison Winn, 35, was facing three multi-county indictments for tampering with or fabricating evidence, diverting controlled substances for personal use and tampering with a witness. Defense attorney Larry Blount said the deal was struck with special prosecutor Gary Young of Lamar County, who was named to handle the case after District Attorney Will Ramsay recused himself. “We came to an agreement and pled to the seven-count tampering, a state-jail felony, and they dismissed the two multiple-county indictments, which were third-degree felonies,” Blount said. “He will do a sentence of 15 months, the maximum sentence is two years, day for day, and the plea bargain we negotiated with Mr. Young was 15 months in a state-jail facility.” After accepting the plea agreement, Northcutt allowed Winn to continue to be out on bond and to report back to the court on July 9 for sentencing. At that time, he will be taken into custody. Winn was arrested in late October of last year in connection with the disappearance of controlled substances, hydrocodone, from the sheriff's department property vault. Winn was in charge of the property vault, and after the drugs were discovered missing, he failed a drug test ordered by investigators. Winn, a 10-year veteran of Hopkins Sheriff's Office, had worked in the department's criminal investigation division for the past year. He was one of two deputies with specialized training in the area of child exploitation. The former deputy has been free on bond following the Oct. 23 arrest. A week after his arrest, a grand jury returned additional indictments against him. At the time of Winn's arrest, Chief Sheriff's Investigator Lewis Tatum said Winn was terminated from his position with the sheriff's department, and said it was disheartening to have to arrest one of his own investigators. “We police ourselves just as we would anyone else,” he said. Winn is to report back before Northcutt on July 9 for sentencing.
