A Sprint representative could shed light today on where Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White lived while he campaigned for office in late 2009 and 2010. Prosecutors say White’s cellphone records will show he lived in a townhouse with his then-fiancee — instead of in a home with his ex-wife, as he has claimed.Evidence on where White lived during that time could convince a Hamilton Superior Court jury as to his guilt or innocence on seven felony charges, including voter fraud and theft. The trial resumes at 9 a.m. today.
Prosecutors allege that White broke the law when he voted in the May 2010 primary because he was living in the townhouse instead of his ex-wife’s house, where he was registered to vote. White also was a member of the Fishers Town Council, and the townhouse was outside his district. He eventually resigned and returned part of his council salary.
Sprint could track where White was when he made calls on his cellphone, Special Prosecutor Dan Sigler told the jury during opening statements Monday. Those records, he said, place White at the townhouse. How convincing those records are will be up to jurors, Sigler said Wednesday. But, he said, “We’re satisfied with our evidence.”
