Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Court of Appeals of Indiana will hear oral arguments on an appeal regarding a defendant’s conviction of Class D felony sexual battery March 24 at 11 a.m. at Indiana State University’s Hulman Memorial Student Union.

In Roland Ball v. State of Indiana, Roland Ball “raises arguments regarding whether the trial court properly instructed the jury on the elements of the crime, whether there was sufficient evidence to support his conviction, and whether he received effective assistance of counsel at his jury trial,” according to a release from the Indiana Court of Appeals.

Chief Judge Margret G. Robb, Judge Carr L. Darden, and Judge Melissa S. May will hear the case on appeal from the Boone Superior Court. Heather Shumaker will argue for Ball, and Gary Rom will argue for the state of Indiana.

After the arguments have concluded, audience members will have an opportunity to ask questions about the state’s judicial process. As part of its “Appeals on Wheels” program, the court has heard more than 275 oral arguments at law schools, colleges, high schools, and county courthouses since its centennial in 2000-2001.
