  • Department of Justice United States Attorney Joseph H. Hogsett Southern District of Indiana FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: TIM HORTY Monday, July 14, 2014 (317) 229-2409 UNITED STATES ATTORNEY JOE HOGSETT ANNOUNCES RESIGNATION FROM OFFICE PRESS RELEASE INDIANAPOLIS – Joseph H. Hogsett, the United States Attorney, announced today his resignation from office, effective July 31, 2014. In a letter submitted to Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, Hogsett thanked his staff and reflected on his time as U.S. Attorney: “It has been an honor to serve in this office for the last four years because I have had the privilege to do so alongside a talented group of Assistant United States Attorneys. I owe them and our tireless support staff a debt of gratitude for the dedication and resilience that has been displayed every day of my tenure… The result of this effort has been the most exciting period in the office’s history. We have set new records for the number of defendants charged and the total number of criminal convictions. The office has led the nation in average length of sentences imposed on criminal defendants. Fiscally, annual office spending has fallen every year I have served, and is currently at a level not seen since the Bush Administration. But numbers alone are not sufficient to describe the office’s accomplishments. Rather, the full story is told through the thousands of victims who found some sense of justice over the last four years – children who had faced horrific exploitation, grandmothers who had watched their retirement funds disappear, neighborhoods that used to live in fear of violent gangs that operated with no regard for the rule of law.” In July 2010, Joseph H. Hogsett was nominated to serve as United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana. He was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate and sworn into office on October 7, 2010. A full-length copy of Hogsett’s resignation letter to Attorney General Holder is attached. ###
