Commission calls for Floyd County prosecutor's suspension

October 7, 2016

The Indiana Supreme Court Disciplinary Commission has asked the state's high court to suspend Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson over findings that he acted unethically in a triple-murder case.

Hearing officer David L. Pippen recommended in August that the Indiana Supreme Court publicly reprimand Henderson, saying he violated ethics in pursuing a deal to write a book about the David Camm case between the second and third trials.

The commission's attorney says Pippen's findings lacked sufficient detail and context and that the evidence warrants Henderson's suspension.

The disciplinary commission had previously accused Henderson of lying about the book deal and then being deceitful in seeking taxpayer funds to pay for his ethics defense.

Henderson's attorney says a public reprimand is unnecessary because his client didn't violate rules of ethics.
