Special prosecutor to handle councilman's case

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A special prosecutor has been appointed to handle the case of a South Bend Common Council member who allegedly drove the wrong way on a highway while drunk.

The South Bend Tribune reports that LaPorte County deputy prosecutor Mary Lake will prosecute Henry Davis Jr., who faces two misdemeanor counts of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

Special prosecutors are often appointed in cases where there's a perceived conflict of interest. Davis once worked for the St. Joseph County's prosecutors' office.

Court documents say Davis has denied being drunk at the time of his July 19 arrest for allegedly driving the wrong way on the U.S. 20 bypass.

In June, the council president dismissed misconduct charges against Davis following complaints that he had posted an explicit photo on Facebook.
