Resolution asking Keith Henderson to reimburse Floyd County fails without discussion

Posted: Updated:

NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WDRB) -- Floyd County Council met in New Albany on Tuesday, and on the agenda was a resolution asking Keith Henderson to pay the county back. 

This comes after a report was released last week recommending Henderson face a public reprimand over the David Camm case. 

Camm was accused of murdering his wife and two kids in 2000. 

Two convictions were overturned by higher courts, and then in 2013, Camm became a free man after a third jury acquitted him. 

A hearing officer of the Indiana Disciplinary Commission to the State Supreme Court writes that Henderson violated ethics rules by getting a book deal to write about the Camm case in between the second and third trials. 

The report also says Henderson was reimbursed more than $27,000 from the county to pay for attorneys during the ethics investigation. 

"To me, if you've engaged in that kind of behavior, you're responsible for the consequences of that behavior," said Floyd County Councilman Matt Oakley. "His book deal had nothing to do with representing Floyd County taxpayers. He wasn't going to share profit for people in Floyd County. That was all for his personal profit, so I think he should repay it."

The resolution failed without any discussion. Henderson declined to comment.
