Attorney General Curtis Hill says he wants the General Assembly to focus more this session on crime prevention efforts. It’s a push, he says, to help people feel safe and comfortable in their communities.

Some women say they don’t feel safe and comfortable with Hill in office.

Hill says not enough attention is paid to crime prevention.

“We can engage with young people from an early age in ways that are effective to encourage them to make better choices,” Hill says.

But many say Hill isn’t the one to deliver that message. Four women accuse him of groping them and an Inspector General investigation backs that up.

Ali Brown was passing out copies of that investigation’s report at the press conference. She says it’s a reminder.

“Our attorney general is a creep," Brown says. "And he thinks he can come out here and talk today and act like none of this happened. And it’s wrong.”

At the end of Hill’s press conference, Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-Munster) – one of Hill’s victims – twice shouted "resign" from an upper floor above him.
