A Marion Co. judicial officer has postponed a court hearing in Danny Tanoos’ bribery case scheduled for Wednesday until May 6.

MARION CO., Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A court hearing scheduled for Wednesday in the Marion Co. bribery case against former VCSC Superintendent Danny Tanoos has been postponed until May 6.

Judge Lisa Borges postponed the hearing Monday following a COVID-19 order from the Executive Committee and the Indiana Supreme Court to postpone all non-essential trials.

Tanoos is facing three counts of bribery, two as a Level 5 felony and one as a Class C felony, stemming from a criminal case filed in Sept. 2018.

In Dec., Indiana Court of Appeals upheld a decision from the Marion Superior Court to deny dismissal of these charges, after Tanoos claimed legal standards weren’t met.

Tanoos asked the Indiana Supreme Court to consider the case back in Jan.; that petition is still pending.

No trial date has been set at this time.
