A Hamilton County judge has denied Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White’s motion to dismiss seven felony charges that were filed against him earlier this year.
White, who is accused of voter fraud and other crimes because of confusion surrounding where he lived while running his 2010 campaign, had argued that the charges should be dismissed because there were problems with the grand jury process that led to his indictment, among other things.
Hamilton Superior Court Judge Steven Nation said in an order Monday that he found “no sufficient basis for the dismissal of the indictments.”
White’s attorney, former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi, said in an email that he and White are “disappointed but respect the court’s ruling.” Brizzi said they have not decided whether to appeal.
