INDIANAPOLIS -- A special prosecutor was appointed to oversee the investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill. 

Daniel Sigler, an attorney from Fort Wayne, Indiana has been appointed by the Marion County Superior Court. 

According to the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, Sigler has been practicing law since 1974 and has mediated approximately 3,500 cases since 1996. He is also a member of the Indiana and Allen County Bar Associations. 

He graduated from Franklin College in 1971. 

The allegations against Hill began in July when a confidential legislative memo leaked to the media alleged Hill groped four women during a party at an Indianapolis bar. The party was held to mark the end of the legislative session.

Three of the women later went public, including Democratic Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon.

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

Attorneys for Curtis Hill released this statement in response to the appointment of a special prosecutor:

"Attorney General Curtis Hill accepts and welcomes the independent investigation by the appointed special prosecutor. The attorney general and his counsel expects that the independent and impartial nature of the special prosecutor's investigation will fully and completely address this matter in a credible and professional manner. We intend to fully cooperate with the special prosecutor during the investigation."
