An attorney with a history of prosecuting embattled Indiana officials has been assigned to the groping case of Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill.

Fort Wayne attorney Daniel Sigler was appointed Tuesday by Marion Superior Judge Lisa Borges.

Sigler formerly served as Adams County prosecutor.

He also prosecuted former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White, who was convicted of voter fraud, perjury and theft in 2012. He was given one year of home detention after it was revealed he received pay for serving a district he didn’t live in.

Hill has denied allegations that he groped a female state lawmaker and three legislative aides at a March post-session party. Hill has not been charged with an official crime at this point.
