One Charge Dropped against Jack Haut

Jack Haut

After being in jail almost a year under $150,000 bond, Jack Haut will be in Starke Circuit Court today to face a Reckless Homicide charge.

Haut is accused of causing the death of Thomas White, who was hit while on his motorcycle riding on State Road 35 north of Knox.

If convicted, Haut could receive anywhere from two to eight years on the Class C Felony charge.

A Class B Felony charge was dropped by the State of Indiana when the toxicology report found no alcohol in Haut’s system. Two prescription medicines Haut was taking at the time were found in his system, but were within the therapeutic range allowed.
