As part of the plea agreement, the former attorney will avoid going to prison; instead, she will spend two years on probation.
The plea agreement was taken under advisement by Superior Court Judge Thomas Johnson, and he ordered a pre-sentence report to be prepared by the probation department. A sentencing hearing is set for 10 a.m. June 29.
Hmmm. Do the words "two forms of justice" come to mind? Even Brad Hiller, the campaign consultant who stole about half as much from the Indiana Senate Republican Committee, had to spend a few months behind bars. A hat tip to the Indiana Law Blog for catching this one.
