INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is in more hot water.
The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission is accusing him of breaking Indiana’s Rules of Professional Conduct for the incidents surrounding a party at the end of last year’s legislative session.
The complaint says Hill’s “ethical violations and offensive conduct reflect poorly on the legal profession and does incalculable harm to the public perception of the Attorney General’s office and all the state agencies it represents.”
A special prosecutor declined to file criminal charges after a group of legislative staffers and a state representative claimed Hill made unwanted advances and touched them at the party.
The disciplinary commission claims Hill committed sexual battery against one legislative staffer and battery against the other three women.
The commission feels Hill’s denial of the allegations is denying responsibility and claims he lacks remorse.
By law, the attorney general must have an Indiana bar status of active in good standing. Disciplinary action could make Hill ineligible to serve.
The Supreme Court will ultimately decide any punishment in the case.
