Indiana’s former secretary of state is asking a judge to reduce his sentence, blaming his attorney for his conviction.
In 2012, a jury found Charlie White guilty of voter fraud. He was registered to vote at his ex-wife’s house but was actually living in a Fishers condo outside of his district.
White said Carl Brizzi was ineffective in his defense and in court documents said that “Brizzi was ignorant of the law.”
Brizzi, who was the former Marion County Prosecutor, was criticized for not calling any defense witnesses in the case.
Right now, White is serving a sentence of one year on home detention.
