The Marion County Prosecutor's Office on Thursday filed criminal charges against Terry Record, a former state attorney accused in a fatal drunken driving crash. Record was charged with DUI causing death and reckless homicide for the Sunday night crash that killed Jimmy Cash, 47, of Indianapolis. Investigators say Record ran a red light at the intersection of Southeastern Avenue and Pleasant Run Parkway, hitting Cash's vehicle. Police tests showed Record's blood alcohol level at the time was between 0.15 percent and 0.17 percent, about twice the legal limit for drivers in Indiana. Witnesses said Record spent nearly four hours before the crash at a strip club, where he drank a minimum of 14 beers and six shots, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in the case. Record was fired from his job as an attorney for the State Department of Health on Wednesday.
