About ten months ago, the Delaware Co. Prosecutor filed a 47-count indictment against the county's treasurer, John Dorer (D), in which he accused the office-holder of theft, conversion, official misconduct and failing to properly deposit public funds. The original multi-felony count indictment seemed like over-kill. Dorer was accused of stealing just a paltry sum of $80.
Today, Dorer went into court and agreed to plead guilty to just one official misconduct charge, a low-level felony eligible for alternative sentencing under which the felony will be reduced to a misdemeanor if he satisfies the terms of his probation. That sole remaining charge relates to his failure to timely deposit county funds 44 times over a 5-year period. In exchange for the plea agreement, Dorer agreed to resign his office effective immediately as part of the settlement of a civil lawsuit the county filed against him last year.
Yet another DEMOCRAT convicted outside of Marion County!
Why aren't they happening in Marion County at the same rate as the rest of the state?
