Former Prosecutor Spokesman Gets Jail Time In OWI

Mario Massillamany Pleads Guilty, Begins Jail Sentence

A former spokesman for the Marion County Prosecutor's Office is serving jail time in Hamilton County after taking a plea deal in his arrest on drunken driving charges.

Mario Massillamany pleaded guilty Wednesday to operating a vehicle while intoxicated and operating while intoxicated endangering a person, both misdemeanors.

He was sentenced to 60 days in jail, beginning immediately, but could be released as early as Jan. 14.

Massillamany was arrested in March after Fishers police said he was driving 71 mph in a 40 mph zone and was in the wrong lane before he was pulled over.

Massillamany was previously convicted of drunken driving in Marion County in 2000.

Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi suspended Massillamany and he later resigned from the office, where he had served for about five years.
