Central Indiana county treasurer bonds from jail

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP): A central Indiana county treasurer facing official misconduct charges is out of jail after a judge reduced his bond.

A judge on Wednesday cut the bond amount for Delaware County Treasurer John Dorer from $400,000 to $50,000. Dorer posted bond and left the jail two days after he was arrested on charges of theft, official misconduct and not depositing public funds on time.

The Star Press reports defense attorney Donald McClellan said Dorer would be pleading not guilty “to each and every one'' of the charges.

Most of the counts charge Dorer with failing to deposit public funds within one business day, as required by law. The theft count alleges he stole $80.

McClellan says 27 of the 44 late deposit charges allege the transactions were one day late.
