A Henderson County Sheriff’s Deputy suspended earlier this week after he was indicted for sexual abuse has been arrested and charged by police.

Trooper Corey King says KSP detectives charged 45 year-old Harvey “Danny” Sizemore of Corydon with one (1) count of Sexual Abuse 1st Degree, which is a class D Felony. He was also charged with three (3) counts of Sexual Abuse 2nd Degree, which are class A Misdemeanors.

According to police, the investigation began in October of 2015 when state police were notified of possible sexual misconduct between Sizemore and a female victim. Police say the victim, who is over the age of 18, has an intellectual disability which is incapable of providing consent. The alleged offenses occurred between August 2015 – October 2015. KSP detectives reportedly investigated the allegations and presented the findings to the Henderson County Grand Jury yesterday. The Grand Jury returned an indictment on Sizemore and he was charged with said offenses.

Police say it is well known in the community that Sizemore is a deputy for the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department. Kentucky State Police detectives say that none of the above charges occurred while being “on-duty” or while performing any other official tasks.

Authorities indicate Sizemore turned himself in this afternoon to troopers and is lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center in Henderson.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported this week Deputy Sizemore was suspended without pay after he was indicted by the Henderson County Grand Jury.

Sizemore has been reportedly employed with the Sheriff’s Office for 11 years, and previously worked at the Sturgis Police Department.
