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.
