INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Court of Appeals has denied a request by former Secretary of State Charlie White that it review a state appeals court decision upholding his three felony convictions for vote fraud, theft and perjury.

Chief Justice Loretta Rush denied White’s request for his case to be reviewed in a one-page order issued Thursday.

The case against White, a Republican, stemmed from his using his ex-wife’s home in Fishers as his voting address in 2010 while serving on the Indianapolis suburb’s town council and running for secretary of state as he lived at his then-fiancee’s townhouse. The appeals court rejected White’s arguments his defense lawyer during his 2012 trial provided incompetent counsel.

The (Munster) Times reports (https://bit.ly/1HDRIBk ) White said he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review his case.
