INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — U.S. Attorney Joseph Hogsett, who recently announced he will resign his position, plans to join Bose McKinney and Evans law firm.
Hogsett’s resignation will be effective Thursday and he’ll start at the law firm Friday.
Over the last year, it’s been speculated that Hogsett was interested in running for mayor of Indianapolis, despite comments made in March that he had no plans to do so. Hogsett said at the time that he intended to remain U.S. Attorney through the end of his term in 2016.
Former U.S. Senator and Indiana Governor Evan Bayh — who nominated Hogsett to serve in his current post — addressed the speculation shortly after Hogsett announced his planned resignation.
“I hope [he runs for Mayor],” Bayh said. “But, that’s a decision for him to make. As you know, he won’t be stepping down from his current job until July 31, and I’m sure he’ll have an answer to that question at some point shortly thereafter.”
At Bose Mckinney and Evans, Hogsett will be a partner in the litigation practice group. He will focus on internal investigations and corporate audits.
