Deputy Sergeant Robert Archer Arrested On Perjury Charges

LABELLE, FL. -- Hendry County Sheriff Whidden announced today that Hendry County Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Archer, 37 was arrested and booked by FDLE, into the Hendry County Jail on three misdemeanor counts of Perjury When Not In An Official Proceeding and one count of Official Misconduct in Public Agency, which is a felony.

Reportedly, Archer was previously involved in a search warrant for a mobile home which led to drug related charges against the occupant, but a judge had reportedly not signed the warrant. Archer is represented by Naples attorney Lee Hollander.

This development results in Sgt. Archer’s change in status with HCSO to Administrative Leave without Pay pending the outcome of the charges. 

Once the court case is disposed of HCSO will conduct an internal investigation into the allegations to determine any policy violations and disciplinary actions warranted.

Sgt. Archer maintains his innocence and should be afforded the same constitutional rights as any other citizen; that he is innocent until proven guilty, said the Sheriff's department.
