Sentencing Set for Former Mayoral Candidate

(Michigan City, IN) - Sentencing is scheduled next month for a man who ran for mayor in Michigan City.


Clifford Thatcher Jr. allegedly broke his girlfriend’s jaw two and a half months ago. According to court documents, she lived together at Normandy Village Apartments. They were arguing when things became physical. At one point, the evidence shows Thatcher threw an elbow striking her

in the jaw.


Thatcher pleaded guilty last week and is scheduled for sentencing on May 21st. Thatcher was a candidate for mayor in Michigan City last year but never made any public appearances and received just a handful of votes.
