Special prosecutor appointed to consider case against South Bend councilman


A special prosecutor has been appointed in case a criminal case moves forward for a South Bend Common Councilman.  Multiple complaints were filed against Councilman Henry Davis Jr. after he posted a controversial photo to his Facebook page.

The special prosecutor is Daniel Hampton out of Kosciusko County.  As a current elected official and former employee with the Prosecutor's Office, the court must appoint outside council to avoid any signs of impropriety.  The appointment of a special prosecutor does not necessarily mean charges will be filed. 

The council attorney is conducting his own review of the case to determine what action, if any, the council board should consider.
