A prosecutor convicted of operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol has been publicly reprimanded by the Indiana Supreme Court:
On February 11, 2010, while serving as chief deputy prosecutor in Sullivan County, Respondent was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated ("OWI"), and he later pled guilty to OWI in a manner that endangers a person, a class A misdemeanor. He was sentenced to one year in jail (with all but six days suspended), fined, and placed on probation, which he has completed successfully. He was suspended from the prosecutor's office without pay for 30 days.
The attorney had self-reported and gotten involved in the bar's alcohol rehabilitation program. (Mike Frisch)
