Ex-Indiana Sec’y of State White Loses Law License

April 26, 2012

Convicted former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White is losing his law license.

The Indiana Supreme Court issued an order Wednesday suspending White's law license on an interim basis effective May 10th because of his convictions earlier this year on six felonies including vote fraud, perjury and theft. The charges stem from using his ex-wife's address as his voting address when he was serving on the Fishers Town Council and running for secretary of state in 2010.

White was sentenced Feb. 23 to one year of home detention. He has said he plans to appeal his convictions, which also cost him his elected office.

An email message seeking comment was sent to White.
