Ind. Courts - Still more on "Tippecanoe Superior Court judge regrets sending campaign email on work computer, account"

Updating this ILB post from Feb. 27th, Ron Wilkins reports today in the Lafayette Journal Courier:

A special prosecutor will handle the investigation into whether Tippecanoe Superior 4 Judge Gregory Donat should be charged for a Feb. 25 campaign email sent from his publicly owned computer and email account.

Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington filed paperwork Wednesday recusing himself and his office from the case to avoid the appearance of impropriety.

Harrington’s filing requested that Todd Meyer, Boone County prosecutor, be appointed to oversee the review of the Indiana State Police investigation findings when the report is completed. If Harrington’s equest is approved, Meyer will also then decide whether Donat should be charged.
