Sheriff's Daughter Held In Burning Case

November 14, 2010

GREENFIELD, IN – Greenfield police arrested the daughter of Hancock County Sheriff C.K. “Bud” Gray on allegations that she scalded her 2-year-old daughter and lied to police.

Ashley Craft, 21, was charged with felony child neglect and misdemeanor false informing after her daughter Ashley was treated for badly burned hands Sept. 14 at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Greenfield Police Department Assistant Chief Derek Towle said.

Craft was arrested Wednesday, Towle said.

Craft told police she accidentally burned Ashley while trying to clean ink off the girl’s hands. Later, she told police her ex-boyfriend caused the burns, a probable cause affidavit filed in Hancock Superior Court said.

Ashley suffered second- and third-degree burns to the backs of both hands, according to the court documents. A doctor told police the burns were not the result of an accident.

Gray is Craft’s adoptive father, Towle said. County commissioners stripped Gray of his duties, but not his title or elected position, after his arrest in August on allegations of obstructing justice in an investigation over the misuse of department funds.

    I pray that the child has a full recovery and this child should never go back to the mother, and the mother needs to be put away for a long time.

    Regardless who her father is she needs to pay for what she has done to that innocent child. If she goes free then how many others get too? But my prayers are for the child!

    And it really matters that her father is a sheriff? She is an adult and makes her own choices independent of her father.

    She should never be allowed to have this child back. Seems like the eggcorns don't fall to far from the tree.

    Not judging, but it does appear that lying and obstructing justice runs in the family, that is if all that's reported here is true...

    Here we go again, what the HELL does her Dad being Sheriff have to do with the actions of this 21 year old ADULT? I HATE the freaking anti-LEO Media and their constant attempts to smear and disgrace the ranks of LE. I bet that if the girls father was a Media reporter or Media Executive that would NEVER have been mentioned in the article.
    If she did what she is accused of, she should be punished. Thoughts and prayers go out to the child for a speedy and complete recovery.
    Screw the Media.....I'm just sayin"

    I know we live in a country where are freedoms are great and many, but maybe the freedom to reproduce should become a privilege to be earned. People like this make me sick and should be locked away, but even that seems to easy to me.
