Ind. Gov't. - More on the office of Indianapolis City Prosecutor

The elected Marion County prosecutor is Terry Curry. The WRTV6 story the ILB quoted earlier this morning concerns a different office, the Indianapolis (City) Prosecutor. Here is what I discovered, from the IndyGov page, about that position:

It is the mission of the Office of Corporation Counsel (OCC) to provide professional legal services to help our clients make decisions in the best interests of the residents and taxpayers of the City of Indianapolis.

OCC is comprised of three sections:

  • City Prosecutor, which prosecutes violations of the civil code;
  • Counseling, which counsels the city/county officials, agencies, departments, boards, and commissions; and
  • Litigation, which defends city/county officials, agencies, departments, boards, and commissions in court cases.
The office is managed by the Corporation Counsel, a mayoral appointee who serves as chief attorney for the City of Indianapolis and Marion County. The current Corporation Counsel, Andrew J. Mallon, began serving on January 1, 2016. [ILB emphasis]
According to this list of city attorneys, Deborah Law "returned to the Office of Corporation Counsel in February 2016 where she serves as City Prosecutor."
