Ind. Courts - "Reprimand recommended against Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson over actions in David Camm case"

Travis Kircher has the just posted story for WDRB Louisville.

The hearings took place in October of 2015 before hearing officer David Pippen. The WDRB story links to a copy of the hearing officer's report. [Update - Here is a copy hosted by the ILB.]

Here is a long list of ILB entries mentioning Mr. Henderson, including a number reporting on the 2015 disciplinary hearing.

From today's story:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The hearing officer of the Indiana Disciplinary Commission has recommended that the Indiana Supreme Court issue a public reprimand against Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson over his actions in the David Camm case.

The recommendation came down on Wednesday, Aug. 3.

Specifically, the recommendation found that Henderson's pursuit of a deal to write a book about the case between Camm's second and third trials violated an ethics rule prohibiting attorneys from negotiating publicity rights arising from representation of their clients.

"The Hearing Officer recommends that Respondent, Keith A. Henderson, receive a public reprimand to make clear to all public attorneys that they should not allow personal interests [to] enter into their public representation," the recommendation concludes.

The hearing officer's recommendation must now go before the Indiana Supreme Court, which must choose whether to accept or reject it.
