MICHIGAN CITY – The day after Mayor Ron Meer was unseated by voters in the municipal election, a third judge has recused himself from taking on the criminal case against the mayor, who Tuesday repeated claims of the charges being politically motivated.

In court documents unsealed on Friday, the mayor is charged with five felony counts of intimidation, one felony charge of official misconduct, and two misdemeanor counts of false informing resulting in a hindrance to law enforcement, according to court records.
