Deputy prosecutor gets reprimand for drunk driving

April 25, 2018

A Johnson County deputy prosecutor has been given a public reprimand for his conviction of misdemeanor drunken driving.

The Indiana Supreme Court issued the reprimand of Andrew C. Eggers in an order issued late Tuesday. The published order approving statement of circumstance and conditional agreement for discipline says Eggers pleaded guilty to Class C misdemeanor operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more based on a March 26, 2017 incident.

Court records show Eggers pleaded guilty last November and a separate OWI count was dismissed. He received a 60-day suspended sentence, fines and his driving privileges were restricted to work travel only.

The parties agree Eggers violated Professional Conduct Rule 8.4(d), which prohibits engaging in conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice. There are no aggravating factors, and the parties cited as mitigating factors that Egggers’ conduct was not due to a dishonest or selfish motive and that he cooperated with the disciplinary process. The parties also noted Eggers has no prior disciplinary history.

The case is In the Matter of: Andrew C. Eggers, 18-DI-188.
