Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says Attorney General Curtis Hill was “plainly wrong” when he asked a court to block an investigation by the Inspector General and halt the appointment of a special prosecutor.

Four women accused Hill of groping them at a party in March.

Hill’s attorneys asked a county judge not to appoint a special prosecutor after Curry, citing a conflict, asked for one. And they say the Inspector General doesn’t have the authority to investigate the allegations.

Legislative leaders and the governor asked for that investigation, which is underway.

In a court filing Thursday, Curry calls it a “dubious proposition” that someone merely suspected of a crime could challenge the authority of an investigating agency or the appointment of a special prosecutor.
