Wilder Resigns As Council And School Board Attorney
Under fire after being found in a neighbor's trash can by Jeffersonville police following a night on the town, Larry Wilder has resigned as counsel for the Jeffersonville City Council and attorney for the Greater Clark County school district according to the Jeffersonville News and Tribune. On Sunday, Mayor Tom Galligan apologized to Wilder's family for the release of embarrassing photos to the media showing Wilder asleep in his neighbor's trash can. The FOP released a statement criticizing Mayor Galligan for drawing conclusions about the police officers' actions before they received a fair hearing before the police merit commission. Galligan referred to the officers as "renegades" and charged them with violating their oath.
