INDIANAPOLIS — A 60-day law license suspension is being recommended for Indiana’s attorney general after allegations that he grabbed the buttocks of a female state legislator and inappropriately touched three other women during a party.
The recommendation filed Friday with the state Supreme Court puts Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill’s ability to remain as state government’s top lawyer in jeopardy as he must have a law license to hold the position.
It wasn't immediately clear how a temporary suspension would affect his status.
Former state Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby proposed the punishment in a report to the court, which will make the final decision.
