Ex-elections chief wants convictions tossed

NOBLESVILLE — The former attorney for Indiana’s ousted elections chief says he didn’t let Charlie White testify at his 2012 voter fraud trial because doing so “would have been a disaster.”

White wants the felony convictions that cost him his job erased. He contends attorney Carl Brizzi (BRIH’-zee) provided incompetent counsel by failing to call any witnesses during the trial.

Brizzi testified Tuesday in a Hamilton County court that he couldn’t control White and that an interview his then-client gave was disastrous.

White’s new attorney argues Brizzi was erratic and deviated from his planned defense.

White was accused of using his ex-wife’s address in Fishers as his voting address when he was serving on the Town Council of the Indianapolis suburb and running for secretary of state in 2010.
