Former Coroner Back in Jail

(La Porte County, IN) - A former public official and firefighter from La Porte County is back in jail. 62-year-old John Sullivan allegedly entered a home without permission and in the bedroom performed a sex act.


La Porte County Police said the activity was captured by a home surveillance system at the residence in Noble Township.


Sullivan is a former two-term La Porte County Coroner, having been on the La Porte County Council a few years ago when charged with entering a residence without permission. The investigation in that case indicated he went through some belongings left in the home of a woman in the process of relocating. Sullivan was later convicted after pleading guilty and spent some time on probation.


Currently, the Wanatah man is charged with residential entry and malicious mischief. He was arrested yesterday morning while backing out of the driveway of the home he entered, police said. 


Sullivan is also a former firefighter in La Porte and former Cass-Clinton Township volunteer firefighter.
