Special prosecutor named to aid in Indiana AG investigation
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A special prosecutor has been named to help investigate allegations that Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill drunkenly groped a lawmaker and three legislative staffers.
A Marion County judge on Tuesday appointed Fort Wayne attorney Daniel Sigler to review the state inspector general’s eventual findings and determine whether Hill should face criminal charges.
Sigler is a Democrat and former prosecutor. He was also the special prosecutor in a case that led to then-Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White’s conviction on voter fraud charges in 2012.
Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry sought a special prosecutor for Hill, citing legal entanglements between his and Hill’s office.
