Lake County Democratic committeemen will meet on October 16 to fill the vacancy created by the conviction of East Chicago, Indiana mayor George Pabey.

Pabey and a co-defendant were found guilty last week of conspiracy and stealing government funds.

A sentencing date has not been set.

The 2 men each face up to 15 years in prison.

Several people have expressed interest in becoming the mayor.

Committeemen will select someone to fill the term until next year's election.
