HAMMOND | A news conference scheduled for Friday will announce "several matters" relating to public corruption, the Hammond-based U.S. attorney reported Thursday.

Federal prosecutors announced no other details and did not confirm who or how many individuals may be encompassed in the 2 p.m. Friday announcement.

Such news conferences have become somewhat common in recent years, with more than 60 people being indicted by federal authorities in Northwest Indiana public corruption probes since 1985.
