A deputy prosecuting attorney who was arrested for possession of marijuana has been reprimanded by the Indiana Supreme Court.
He admitted the charge and entered into a diversion program. He was "discharged from his position shortly after his arrest."
The court accepted the agreed sanction, noting the absence of prior discipline, cooperation and that "there is no evidence of addiction or substance abuse." The court also stated that the sanction would "likely be more severe had this matter been submitted without agreement." (Mike Frisch)
