Levco wins top award

Lawyers from across the state do more than applaud Stan Levco, for his work as Vanderburgh County Prosecutor. Levco was honored with the Eugene "Shine" Feller Award from the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council. It's membership includes every prosecuting attorney in the state, as well as their chief deputies. Director Stephen Johnson says the award's namesake, Feller, was a Southern Indiana lawyer who was an early proponent of better training for prosecutors. Johnson says Levco was a natural and overwhelming choice for the achievement award. Levco is finishing his fifth term as prosecutor. His bid for a sixth ended last month when Nick Hermann was elected to replace him.
