State NewsThe Association of Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys, Inc., will announce this afternoon two legislative proposals for the 2016 session that are designed to give prosecutors  better tools to deal with serious drug dealers – the criminals they believe are driving the alarming increase in meth labs, pharmacy robberies, heroin overdoses, home invasions and other violent crime in Indiana.

Speaking on behalf of Indiana prosecuting attorneys will be Marshall County Prosecutor E. Nelson Chipman, Jr., Allen County Prosecutor Karen E. Richards, and Madison County Prosecutor Rodney Cummings.   

The announcement will take place today at 1:30 p.m. at the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office in Fort Wayne.
