TERRE HAUTE, Ind (WTHI) - A motion was filed late Thursday by former Vigo County Schools Superintendent Danny Tanoos' attorneys.
James Voyles & Jennifer Lukemeyer have not given up their fight to get his charges dismissed and continue their argument that felony charges do not support the bribery allegations. Those charges were filed in 2018 by Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.
This is to appeal the judge's decision to deny a previous motion to dismiss. Tanoos faces three counts of Bribery. He is accused of accepting favors in order to steer business to an Indianapolis business.
Among the reasons for this, the lawyers say trial would be very expensive for all involved.
