Hamilton County attorney drunken-driving charges include a felony

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A Barnes & Thornburg LLP attorney arrested July 7 on suspicion of drunken driving in Hamilton County faces two charges from the incident, including a Class D felony because of a prior conviction.

Marietto “Mario” V. Massillamany, 36, was pulled over on 96th Street in Hamilton County at around 7:30 a.m. by a Hamilton County sheriff’s deputy, who conducted an operating while intoxicated investigation. Massillamany was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

 The Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office filed charges Thursday against Massillamany for OWI with a previous conviction, a Class D felony, and operating while intoxicated endangering a person, a Class A misdemeanor.

Massillamany, of Fishers, pleaded guilty to Class A misdemeanor OWI endangering a person in March 2010 while he was spokesman for the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office. A second charge of Class A misdemeanor operating a vehicle with an alcohol concentration equivalent to 0.15 or more was dismissed.

Massillamany’s driver’s license was suspended and he was ordered to complete probation and community service as part of his sentence.

He resigned from the prosecutor’s office after the arrest and was publicly reprimanded by the Indiana Supreme Court in May 2011. As part of his discipline, Massillamany executed a monitoring agreement with the Indiana Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program.

If convicted on the felony charge, Massillamany faces possible suspension by the Indiana Supreme Court.

Massillamany’s practice at Barnes & Thornburg focuses on legislative and procurement issues, as well as government regulation matters and public finance.

    Steven, not all felonies are created equal. Crimi falsi? Crime of passion? Habitual traffic offender? Would matter what the underlying crime was .... now, if the faux pas is refusing to pledge allegiance to political correctness, that is a deal breaker, even worse than a felony. https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert

  1. How do you go about each day with out having resentment or ill will towards the evil that has done this to you? Is it your faith that keeps you going and knowing that someday they will have to answer to God? At church our pastor talked about forgiveness and how Jesus forgave our sins and we should too. Its very hard knowing that we do the right thing in this world, and those that are liars, thieves, are continued in power and continue on doing their jobs, while you are banished from something that you have every right to do with out being penalized.

  2. From my post below .... I cut and pasted in error: http://www.theindianalawyer.com/human-trafficking-rising-in-indiana/PARAMS/article/42468

  3. Your prayers must account for some of the wind beneath my wings. That and this: His yoke is easy, His burden light. OK, now to bring this comment thread 100% back to the topic at hand. From my secret files, never before published, a letter that Commission head Myra Selby deemed interesting, but ..... This Hail Mary was ignored by the Commission, and then cited by the Indiana bar examiners to justify the need for a lifetime banishment from the Indiana Supreme Court. I tender it as a study in anti white male anti Christian antipathy in the Indiana court system. Focused upon the Race (ie not white) and Gender (ie not male) and not religious Commission for "fairness."

  4. What a disgrace of Judicial Proceedings. Can complain and write comments forever but someone needs to show the mother how to fight back before he turns this little girl against her.

  5. The truth comes out Issac Law Firm for Men helped Montgomery to get custody.Should read the lies he told them.How much was paid to the judges?
