INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.— Former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White will not have to serve home detention while he appeals his voting fraud and theft conviction.
A court has stayed White one year of home detention while the Indiana Court of Appeals takes up his case. White was convicted in early 2012 of voting fraud and theft for not revealing his true address while serving on the Fishers Town Council and running for secretary of state.
White has maintained he did not intentionally conceal his address and that he was the victim of illegal malpractice by his former attorney Carl Brizzi.
A Hamilton County judge ruled against White’s motion last month to overturn his verdict.
