Hearing Begins Today Into Attorney General Curtis Hill's Behavior
INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill is facing a hearing that will set his fate.
A former Indiana Supreme Court justice will start proceedings today on the professional misconduct claims against Hill.
"We have been the subject of accusations that have been made and in this environment, as we are seeing in Washington, that you are guilty until proven innocent," Hill said of the accusations on CSPAN last year.
If the judge finds in favor of the women who've accused Hill of grabbing their backsides at an Indianapolis bar, he could lose his license to practice law.
The hearing starts today, and it could last all week.
Hill has adamantly denied the accusations from the very beginning.
A report from the inspector general earlier this year did not say if Hill was guilty of any criminal wrongdoing, but it did highlight many instances where state lawmakers and others who work at the statehouse described some of his behavior as "creepy" and "unwelcome."
Others had also accused Hill of using state funds and workers to defend himself as the litigation was carried out. Again, the IG report could not prove any of those accusations were true.
