Three Counts Against Ex-Indiana Elections Chief Upheld

The defense attorney for former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White says he will keep fighting the voter fraud convictions that forced him from office.

A state appeals court issued a ruling Monday that upholds three felony convictions against White, while dismissing three other counts.
 
White's defense attorney says in a statement that White intends to exhaust all of his appeal options.
 
The court upheld White's convictions on perjury, voting in an incorrect precinct and theft.
 
Special prosecutor John Dowd tells The Associated Press that those charges were the most significant regarding White's conduct.
 
Those charges stemmed from White using his ex-wife's home in Fishers as his voting address in 2010 while serving on the Indianapolis suburb's town council and running for secretary of state.

Some Indiana Gay Marriages Could Be Invalid

The Indiana Attorney General's office says same-sex couples who married in the two days after the state's gay marriage ban was first struck down should confirm their marriages were properly recorded.

The Attorney General's office sent a memo to county clerks saying those couples faced unusual circumstances because same-sex marriages were allowed for a short time before a ruling against the ban was put on hold by a federal appeals court.

The Times of Munster reports those marriages might not be legally valid if couples didn't solemnize their marriage within 60 days of receiving a marriage license or the county clerks didn't record them within 3 days.
 
The office says those couples could obtain a new license and complete the necessary steps to avoid any uncertainty.
