INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — 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.
Hill is accused
of groping the women at an Indianapolis bar in March. The Republican has denied
the allegations and rejected calls to resign
from the Republican governor and legislative leaders.
