Sutter To Succeed Lewis As Prosecuting Attorney
Attorney David Sutter was chosen to succeed Chad Lewis as the county’s prosecuting attorney for the Fifth Judicial Circuit during a caucus of the Jefferson County Democratic Party.
Sutter, 31, from Hanover, was the only candidate to apply for the job that Lewis will be vacating Jan. 1. Sutter received all 14 of the caucus votes cast.
Per Indiana statute, the vacancy caused by Lewis’ decision to step down from elected office is filled by a caucus of precinct committeemen affiliated with the political party that elected the candidate.
Sutter is a partner at Jenner, Pattison & Sutter Law Office.
