Can You Say R-I-C-O?
It's beginning to look a lot like a banner year for white collar criminal defense attorneys in Indianapolis. Tim Durham may just be one of many big-time Indianapolis players under examination by federal investigators. It may turn out that some so-called successful business people haven't been on the up-and-up in all of their business dealings and may have abused access and influence with local law enforcement officials. Has this investigation outgrown the U.S. Attorney's Office in Indianapolis, which has a bad track record when it comes to prosecuting public corruption cases? Will the Public Integrity Section in the the Justice Department assume control of this far-reaching investigation? Just a few things to ponder on a blustery December afternoon.
