Prosecutor to run for re-election

GREENSBURG – James B. Rosenberry announced Thursday that he has filed for re-election as Decatur County Prosecutor.

He has been a career prosecutor for 25 years, with the last 22 years in the Decatur County Prosecutor’s Office.

Rosenberry grew up in Greensburg. He graduated from Greensburg Community High School in 1980, and from Ball State University with honors in 1984.

He then graduated from the Indiana University Law School - Bloomington in 1987. After serving as deputy prosecutor in Hamilton County he returned to Greensburg, where he served as Chief Deputy Prosecutor for 19 years. He was elected Decatur County Prosecutor in 2010. Rosenberry and his wife Kathy live in Greensburg.

The office of Prosecuting Attorney was created under the Indiana Constitution for a term of four years.

The criminal division of the prosecutor’s office files an average of 830 cases per year, of which approximately 40 percent are felonies. In addition, the child support enforcement division collects approximately $2.5 million in support each year.

In 2012, Rosenberry proposed legislation to change the crime of Sexual Battery to include persons victimized while asleep or unaware and unable to resist being molested. In 2013, he worked with the Indiana Prosecuting Attorney’s Council reviewing proposed changes to Indiana’s criminal code.

“My goal as prosecutor will be to continue to promote public safety and responsibility,” Rosenberry said.

“I appreciate the support of the people of Decatur County, and I truly hope to continue to serve as the prosecutor for our county.”
