Hogsett Says Office Will Remain Focused On Public Corruption

The U.S. Attorney worked with the FBI and local police on the case. The U.S. Attorneys office says they've recently increased efforts to root out public corruption.

Less than a year into his term as U.S. Attorney, Hogsett formed the Public Corruption Working Group, a joint effort of agencies that include the U.S. Attorney’s office, the FBI, the State Police, the IRS and the Indiana Attorney General’s office.  Since the creation of that group, Hogsett’s office has indicted two dozen public officials.

Hogsett says he’s confident that will continue. “All those federal and state agencies working together I think make a very powerful group to root out public corruption wherever it exists,” Hogsett says.

“We have our senior litigation counsel dedication to doing nothing but public corruption prosecutions.”

Hogsett’s temporary replacement as U.S. Attorney is Jake Minkler, who served as Hogsett’s First Assistant U.S. Attorney.
