(LAWRENCE, IN) - Lawrence Township Trustee Michael Hobbs must resign, following his sentencing on an official misconduct charge.
Hobbs pleaded guilty to using a 500-dollar township check earmarked for the township historical society to pay his rent.
A judge declined to reduce the felony charge to a misdemeanor, and convicted felons can't hold elected office in Indiana.
