INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A not guilty plea has been entered for an Indiana judge facing battery charges stemming from a fight outside an Indianapolis fast-food restaurant in which he and another judge were shot and wounded.
The Indianapolis Star reports 47-year-old Clark County Circuit Judge Andrew Adams also was ordered to stay away from the White Castle that was the scene of the May 1 fight while the judges were in Indianapolis for a conference. Following his initial hearing Wednesday morning, Adams was released from custody.
An attorney issued a statement on behalf of Adams this week saying he’s “prepared to proceed through the legal process.”
Adams is one of three people, including the alleged gunman, who were charged in the fight.
