BLOOMINGTON - Vic Farkas, Republican candidate for Monroe County surveyor, is involved in a pending criminal case in which he’s accused of theft, a Class D felony.
 
In the case, the state of Indiana alleges that Farkas, in March 2005, “did knowingly exert unauthorized control over the money of Raymond Mulry (of Ellettsville) by creating or confirming the false impression that he was a licensed surveyor with the intent to deprive said person of any or part of the use or value of the property.”
 
On Oct. 15, 2008, in an attempt to negotiate a plea, the state asked Farkas to plead guilty to theft and pay Mulry $935 or pay for a survey of his property to be conducted. The state also asked that Farkas be placed on probation for 18 months and complete 80 hours of public restitution. Farkas rejected the plea offer.
 
“I feel I have done nothing wrong,” Farkas said Monday afternoon.
