Treasurer says judge also mishandled funds

– A treasurer for an eastern Indiana county accused of mishandling public funds wants the judge handling his case to step aside, arguing she did the same thing.

Delaware County Treasurer John Dorer was charged in April with 47 counts, 44 of which involve failing to deposit public funds within 24 hours of receipt as required by state law.

The Star Press reports the 50-year-old politician’s lawyers filed a motion Monday asking Delaware Circuit Judge Marianne Vorhees to recuse herself.

The motion says state audits from 2005-2010 indicate that departments overseen by the central Indiana county’s five judges also deposited funds late.

The prosecutor’s office says it’s reviewing the motion. It also is seeking to have Dorer removed from office.
