The Delaware County Treasurer is expected in court this morning, seeking a reduction in the bond set for him after he was charged with 47 criminal and misdemeanor counts stemming from his alleged mis-use of public funds.
50-year old County Treasurer John Dorer of Muncie was arrested Monday after the charges were filed against him. He’s charged with multiple counts of Failure to Properly Deposit Public Funds, plus counts of Theft, Conversion and Official Misconduct.
Prosecutors claim Dorer illegally used and often delayed making deposits of public money totaling nearly three-million dollars between 2009 and 2011. The charges filed Monday against the Treasurer culminated an eight-month investigation.
Dorer has remained jailed on 400-thousand dollars bond. His attorney today will seek a reduction in bond so he can post bail and go free until his trial.
