MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - The defense attorney for a central Indiana county treasurer jailed on official misconduct charges says the official denies any wrongdoing.

Delaware County Treasurer John Dorer surrendered for arrest Monday after prosecutors filed charges that allege theft, official misconduct and 44 counts of not depositing public funds on time.

Defense attorney, Donald McClellan tells The Star Press (https://tspne.ws/1gACGSD ) that Dorer “vehemently denies” the allegations and believes he did nothing wrong.

The prosecutor is seeking to have Dorer removed from office. 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 in cash.

Dorer is jailed under $400,000 bond. McClellan says he will request a bond reduction during a Wednesday court hearing.
