Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett’s special counsel wants a new job, County Prosecutor.

Tim Moriarty announced that he would be pursuing the caucus nomination for Marion County Prosecutor. Since 2016, Moriarty has served as Special Counsel to Mayor Joe Hogsett, and Chair of the City’s Criminal Justice Reform Task Force.

Prior to joining the Hogsett administration, Moriarty worked as a litigator at Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, where he developed an extensive background in complex litigation and corporate internal investigations.

“The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office plays a critical role in the community’s public safety and criminal justice reform efforts. Over the last three years, I’ve had the chance to see first hand the importance of smart policy that keeps violent criminals off our streets and thoughtful reforms in order to keep those who don’t belong in jail, out,” said Tim Moriarty. “As prosecutor, I believe I can implement holistic reforms that fundamentally address the mental health and addiction challenges that face too many in our criminal justice system while helping to rid our neighborhoods of the worst of the worst.”

Curry announced yesterday that he was stepping down due to prostate cancer.

A caucus must be called within 30 days to pick his replacement.
