Attorney General Hill Described As ‘Creeper’ In Disciplinary Hearing’s First Day

The four women who say Attorney General Curtis Hill inappropriately touched them took the stand Monday at a state disciplinary hearing.

That was the bulk of day one of a week-long proceeding that sees Hill defending his law license.

Rep. Mara Candelaria Reardon (D-Munster) and three legislative staffers – Samantha Lozano, Niki DaSilva and Gabrielle Brock – say Curtis Hill groped them at a party in March 2018.

They each testified about that night and what they’ve experienced since during the day-long hearing. Reardon described Hill as a “creeper.” DaSilva says she felt “white hot anger” when he touched her. And Brock says she regrets coming forward because Hill hasn’t faced any consequences for his actions.

Hill’s attorneys focused on inaccuracies in a legislative memo prepared by an outside law firm last year about the incident. And they sought to excuse away Hill’s conduct as flirtatious behavior.
