The Indiana Supreme Court suspended former Secretary of State Charlie White’s law license Tuesday for a period of at least two years, according to court documents. White was convicted in February 2012 of six Class D felony charges, including voter fraud, perjury and theft. Prosecutors say he voted in a district other than his district of residency. White was sentenced in Hamilton Superior Court to one year of home detention and spent the following year appealing his sentence, claiming his defense attorney was incompetent.
In December 2014, three of White’s original six charges were thrown out in appellate court, and in September, he was resentenced to one year of home detention and ordered to pay a $1,000 fine and fulfill 30 hours of community service.
White’s one-year home detention began in October.
White’s license had been under order of interim suspension since April 2012 while his case proceeded, according to court documents. After the two-year suspension period, White can petition the court to reinstate his license.
