INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — United States Attorney Joe Hogsett will join the law firm Bose McKinney and Evans LLP as a new partner effective Aug. 1. Hogsett will concentrate on the internal investigations and corporate audits.

Hogsett has been the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana since 2010. He announced his resignation earlier this month, which goes into effect on July 31.

“Joe is an extremely accomplished attorney and we are thrilled to have him join our firm where his tremendous talents will be utilized to assist our clients,” Jeffrey R. Gaither, managing partner at Bose McKinney & Evans, told News 18 in a release.

It has been reported that while serving as U.S. Attorney, Hogsett’s office broke records for the most criminals charged and sentenced. Additionally, the Southern District of Indiana led the nation in the average sentence length for convicted felons.

In a news release, Hogsett said he is pleased to join the practice of Bose McKinney & Evans.

“It’s a firm that I have always respected and whose reputation for excellence in Indiana is well known,” said Hogsett. “Perhaps most importantly, I have been thoroughly impressed by this firm’s long history of active engagement in communities statewide.”

Hogsett is a native from Rushville, Indiana. He received his bachelor’s degree in history and political science with honors from Indiana University in 1978. Hogsett graduated from IU’s School of Law in 1981. He also obtained other graduate degrees: English from Butler University in 1987, theological studies from Christian Theological Seminary in 1999, and history from Indiana University in 2007.

Hogsett was appointed Indiana’s 57th Secretary of State in 1988 and was elected to a full four-year term in November 1990. Hogsett has spent 21 years in the private practice of law and is married with three children.
