INDIANAPOLIS -- Governor Holcomb says he still believes the four women who have accused Attorney General Curtis Hill of sexual harassment, despite the prosecutor's decision not to press charges in the case and he stands by his call for Hill to resign. 

The alleged sexual misconduct happened in the early morning hours of March 15, 2018, at a party at A.J's Bar in Indianapolis. The alleged behavior included suggestive statements and unwanted touching by Hill.  Hill did not deny touching occurred but said it was either incidental to conversation or movement in the bar, according to the prosecutor's report.

“I said I believed the women who stepped forward to report sexual harassment by the Indiana Attorney General," Holcomb said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon. "The special prosecutor agreed and said, ‘I have accepted the victim statements as true.’ The findings show a disregard of the executive branch zero-tolerance harassment policy. My position has not changed.”
