MUNCIE, Ind. - A central Indiana county treasurer charged with mishandling public money wants the judge overseeing his case to step aside, arguing she did the same thing.
Delaware County Treasurer John Dorer was charged in April with 47 counts, 44 of which involve failing to deposit public funds within 24 hours as required by state law.
The Star Press reports Dorer's lawyers have filed a motion asking Delaware Circuit Court Judge Marianne Vorhees to recuse herself.
The motion says state audits from 2005-2010 indicate that departments overseen by Delaware County's five judges also deposited funds late.
The county prosecutor's office says it's reviewing the motion. It also is seeking to have Dorer removed from office.
