Three judges have been charged with violations of the Indiana Code of Judicial Conduct for their roles in a violent May 1 altercation in downtown Indianapolis. A new report reveals exactly what the judges did that night leading up to the shootings.
Ryan Mears, who was Terry Curry’s chief trial deputy, has been serving as the interim prosecutor since Curry stepped down Sept. 23. He promised to be an independent leader who works for the good of the Indianapolis community and takes a tough stance on violent crime.
The policy shift is meant to free up resources to focus on violent crime in Indianapolis. More serious marijuana offenses involving more than one ounce of pot will still be prosecuted.
One of the two judges hospitalized after a downtown Indianapolis shooting has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in connection with the May 1 incident. The judge will not serve any jail time under the agreement.
