INDIANAPOLIS — The Rev. Charles Harrison, the leader of the Ten Point Coalition, said Attorney General Curtis Hill has always had “honorable” conduct around women when they’ve been together.
An eight-page memo outlines allegations of sexual misconduct against Hill, which allegedly happened on March 15. The memo states that a lawmaker and three legislative staffers said Hill inappropriately touched them at a party shortly after Indiana’s legislative session came to a close.
“I interacted with several people – talking, laughing, and telling stories,” Hill said in a statement. “At no time was my behavior inappropriate nor did I touch anyone in an inappropriate manner.”
The Ten Point Coalition is an Indianapolis-based crime-fighting organization that has received backing from Hill in recent years. Hill helped secure funding for the group’s efforts in reducing gun violence in Indianapolis and Gary.
When asked about the allegations against Hill, Harrison released the following statement:
“First let me say I am against any kind of sexual harassment, and I believe that this kind of conduct has no place in our society. I have known Attorney General Curtis Hill Jr for several years now. I have often been with Attorney General Curtis Hill Jr in a lot of different settings, and I have never witnessed in my presence any kind of sexual misconduct toward women. Attorney General Hill has always been respectful and has conducted himself in appropriate ways around women. I can only speak to what I have witnessed, and in my presence Attorney General Hill’s conduct has always been honorable.”
