Gov. Eric J. Holcomb announced that Devon McDonald will serve as the next executive director of the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) upon current Executive Director David Murtaugh’s retirement.
“David Murtaugh has been a lifelong public servant to his local community, state, and nation,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I want to thank Dave for his distinguished career of sacrifice and dedication to criminal justice.”
Gov. Holcomb nominated McDonald and Friday, the ICJI Board of Trustees approved his nomination.
In 2012, McDonald started his career at ICJI as a victim compensation supervisor and currently serves as chief of staff and general counsel.
McDonald earned a Bachelor of Science from IUPUI and a law degree from Indiana University McKinney School of Law. Prior to entering law school, Devon served in the U.S. Army where he earned multiple awards for outstanding achievement.
