A southern Indiana attorney plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of false informing to police that someone shot him while he was jogging at a state park, according to The Herald-Times
Forty-four-year old attorney, Peter Raventos, Spencer, plead guilty last week to false informing policy, a misdemeanor count, in Owen County court.
Raventos was discovered in McCormick’s Creek State Park in June 2012 with shotgun wounds to his back. Immediately after the shooting, he told police someone shot him in the back as he was jogging in the park. Over a year later after police investigation, it was found that Raventos set up the shooting himself.
According to The Herald Times, Raventos used bungee cords and fishing line to rig a shotgun that was then used to shoot him in the back at the state park.
The shooting occurred just three days before Raventos was scheduled to appear in court for being behind in child support payments.
His sentencing is one day in jail, one year of probation, and he is permanently banned from all state parks and wildlife areas. A disciplinary decision from the Indiana Supreme Court has not been determined at this time.
