(HOPE) - There won't be a special prosecutor appointed in the case of embattled Hope Town Marshal Randy Bailey.
Bailey's attorney, Thomas Barr, told our The Republic that he cited multiple reasons in court this week why he thought Bartholomew County Prosecutor Bill Nash and Deputy Prosecutor Greg Long should step aside in favor of a special prosecutor claiming they had violated rules of a professional code of conduct.
Bailey was accused of making false accusations that led to the arrest of Anthony Paul of Hope. Bailey was charged Aug. 19 with official misconduct, a Class D felony; and false informing, a Class B misdemeanor.
