Breaking: Caldwell Police Lt. Joey Hoadley Now Indicted on Two Federal Felony Charges

By • April 13, 2022

Joey Hoadley, the former Lieutenant over “Investigations” at the Caldwell Police Department, has now been indicted on two felony charges.

Hoadley had previously attended a “plea agreement hearing.” It is unclear what happened at the hearing, but attorneys Idaho Dispatch spoke with say that the felony charges likely wouldn’t have been filed if Hoadley had agreed to accept the misdemeanor charge he was facing.

Hoadley was one of two Caldwell P.D. officers being investigated by the FBI.

One of the charges is for “Deprivation of Rights under Color of Law.” The previous misdemeanor charge was for the same alleged violation but is now filed as a felony.

The other felony charge is for “Destruction, Alteration, or Falsification of Records in Federal Investigations.”

If convicted, Hoadley could face up to ten years in prison for the first charge and up to 20 years in prison for the other charge. Additionally, each charge carries a potential fine of up to $250,000.
