The Indiana Supreme Court has named an interim replacement to fill in for a northern Indiana county prosecutor whose law license is being suspended for 60 days.

The high court has named LaPorte County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Robert Neary to fill in for Prosecutor Robert Szilagyi starting Aug. 1.

Szilagyi has been ordered to stop practicing law for 60 days.
The Supreme Court suspended his license on June 20, saying he
signed his ex-wife's name to a document related to the refinancing
of his home soon after their 2009 divorce in order to avoid a conversation with her. He also signed his secretary's name as a
notary to the document.

Szilagyi was elected prosecutor in 2010.
