A special prosecutor who helped investigate allegations that Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill drunkenly groped a lawmaker and three legislative staffers is planning an announcement on that investigation.

A confidential legislative memo leaked to the media alleges Hill groped the four women in Indianapolis during a March party that marked the end of the legislative session. Three of the women later went public .

Hill has denied the allegations and rejected calls to resign from Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb and legislative leaders.

A Marion County judge appointed Fort Wayne attorney Daniel Sigler in July to review the state inspector general’s findings in a probe of the allegations against Hill and to determine whether the Republican officeholder should face criminal charges.

Sigler has scheduled a Tuesday morning news conference in Indianapolis.
