Charlie White Trial Winding Down

by Rick Howlett on February 2, 2012

Closing arguments are set for tomorrow in the criminal trial of Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White.

White’s defense lawyer rested Thursday without presenting a case against voter fraud charges that could oust him from office.

White is charged with seven felony counts including fraud, perjury and theft.

If he’s convicted of a single felony count, he faces removal from office and possible prison time.

Prosecutors claim White used his ex-wife’s address on his voter registration form in the 2010 Republican primary when he actually had a condo elsewhere with his fiance. They also say he continued to collect a salary for a council position when he had moved from the district he was supposed to represent.

White contends his ex-wife’s house was his primary address at the time.
