Shouldn't be necessary to say this

But, obviously, it is:

DOJ: Statement on Georgia Thompson Indictment

For More Information Contact: Kelly Kennedy

As stated in the January 24, 2006 news release of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the indictment charging Georgia Thompson alleges violations of law by her alone, and does not allege wrongdoing by any other person. Those charges were the result of an investigation conducted by experienced, career prosecutors and investigators, both state and federal, and the evidence was reviewed by members of this office, both U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, and the Office of the Dane County District Attorney. It is not appropriate for those involved in the investigation and prosecution to discuss publicly the evidence supporting the charges, or to respond to comments critical or supportive of the indictment. This case will continue to be handled in a professional manner, and the evidence will be presented in court.

The indictment is a charging document only, and Ms. Thompson is at this time presumed innocent.
