White still hopes to reclaim job

 

Ousted Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White plans to ask a judge to reduce his six felony convictions to misdemeanors at sentencing.

It’s uncertain whether that move would allow him to reclaim his job.

In the meantime, Governor Mitch Daniels has appointed White’s chief deputy, Jerry Bonnet, as interim secretary of state.

A jury convicted White of three counts of voter fraud, two counts of perjury and one count of theft.

He could face six months to three years in prison on each of the counts.

A sentencing date has not been set.
