Prosecutor to See if Friendship Keyed Ivy Tech Job

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana's inspector general has named a special prosecutor to investigate whether a friendship with an Ivy Tech trustee led to the preferential hiring of former Department of Natural Resources Director Rob Carter Jr. as the statewide community college's security chief.
The Indianapolis Star reports Inspector General David Thomas appointed Posey County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jonathan Parkhurst to investigate the hiring.
Thomas said Thursday he recused himself because he's been friends with Carter for 20 years. The two are former elected officials in western Indiana's Clay County.
The Star reported last month that Ivy Tech hired Carter months after former Trustee V. Bruce Walkup emailed Carter suggesting he'd soon handle the college's security issues. The job wasn't posted until three months later.
An Ivy Tech spokesman was asked for comment.
