SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - An attorney for the South Bend Common Council says council member Henry Davis Jr. likely did not violate his oath of office when he posted an explicit photo of a naked man and a dog to his Facebook page.

But the South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1fxBqLl) that a report by council attorney Kathleen Cekanski-Farrand says Henry Davis Jr. may have violated the council’s rules of decorum. The council’s Rules Committee must now review the report and determine whether Davis’ actions constitute a code or statutory violation.

State police also are investigating the photo. Kosciusko County Prosecutor Daniel Hampton has been assigned to act as special prosecutor in the case.

Davis held a news conference last month calling the posting a mistake and asking for forgiveness.
