INDIANAPOLIS — Attorneys for Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill say he “welcomes” the appointment of a special prosecutor to help investigate allegations that he drunkenly groped a lawmaker and three legislative staffers.
Attorneys James Voyles and Jennifer Lukemeyer issued a statement Wednesday saying they’ll “fully cooperate” with Fort Wayne attorney Daniel Sigler as he reviews the state inspector general’s eventual findings and determines whether Hill should face criminal charges.
A Marion County judge on Tuesday appointed Sigler, a Democrat who also was the special prosecutor who won then-Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White’s conviction on voter fraud charges in 2012.
