(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Olin Clawson made his initial appearance in Dearborn Circuit Court on Friday.
The former Superintendent of Lawrenceburg Municipal Utilities entered a not guilty plea as he is facing three counts of Theft (Level 6 Felony), four counts of Official Misconduct (Level 6 Felony), six counts of Forgery (Level 6 Felony), four counts of Perjury (Level 6 Felony), Attempted Obstruction of Justice (Level 6 Felony), and Corrupt Business Influence (Level 5 Felony).
The charges stem from a federal investigation into irregularities within the finances of Lawrenceburg Municipal Utilities that allegedly enriched Clawson’s personal bank account.
Clawson was booked into the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center last Wednesday but has since bonded out on $25,000 surety.
Judge James Humphrey has granted Clawson's request for trial by jury.
A pre-trial conference is scheduled for September 14 at 8:45 a.m.
