[ATG] Attorney General’s statement on appeal in utility regulator case
Start Date: 3/31/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/31/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Today the Indiana Court of Appeals heard oral arguments in the State’s appeal that seeks to reinstate criminal charges against David Lott Hardy, a former state utility regulator.  The Marion County trial court last year had dismissed the official misconduct charges, finding the law had changed in 2012 after the alleged criminal acts occurred in 2010.  The Indiana Attorney General’s Office, representing the prosecution, appealed the trial court’s ruling and a three-judge appeals court panel heard the case today. 

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller today issued this statement: 

“For the public to have confidence in our laws there must be public accountability; and individuals who hold positions of public trust ought to be held to a very high standard.  My office, working with the prosecutor, maintains that the official misconduct statute that was on the books in 2010 should be enforced against this defendant, since the Legislature when it changed the law in 2012 did not make the change retroactive,” Zoeller said. 

The Attorney General’s Office asks that the trial court’s ruling be reversed and the criminal charges against Hardy be allowed to resume and go to trial.  The Court of Appeals took the case under advisement and will rule at a later date.
