Charlie White is being tried for voter fraud and perjury.

Jury selection began Monday morning in Noblesville for Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White.

Hamilton County Superior Court Judge Steve Nation says the entire proceeding could take two weeks. The prosecution and White‘s defense team each have about 15 witnesses on their lists. Attorneys expect jury selection to take two days with the actual trial lasting five days or more.

White was indicted last spring on seven felony counts, including charges of voter fraud and perjury stemming from his use of his ex-wife‘s address on his voter registration. He is also charged with theft for collecting his salary as a Fishers town councilman after moving out of his council district.

White moved out of his apartment during his campaign for secretary of state, and has contended his ex-wife‘s home was the closest thing he had to a regular residence at the time. If White is convicted, he would be forced to resign. Republican Governor Mitch Daniels would then appoint his successor.
