A Hamilton County judge has denied former Secretary of State Charlie White's request for a new voter fraud trial.
The decision rejects White's claim that his attorney provided ineffective counsel.
The former secretary of state was convicted in February 2012 of felony voter fraud charges. The charges centered around allegations that White was registered at his ex-wife's home when he voted in a May primary even though he lived at a new townhouse on the other side of Fishers, making him ineligible to run for office.
White was sentenced to one year home detention.
