LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A Lee County corrections deputy facing fraud and perjury charges is pleading not guilty this morning. Jeremy Shaffer's attorney entered that plea on his behalf in court.
Shaffer is accused of hiding money for a woman divorcing her husband, by making several deposits into his account small enough they wouldn't be reported to the government. Then, he's accused of denying it under oath during a deposition.
He's currently on leave without pay.
