Indiana Court of Appeals
David S. Healey v. State of Indiana (NFP)
33A01-1308-MI-368
Miscellaneous. Affirms the trial court’s order directing law enforcement and the Indiana Department of Correction to ensure that Healey’s information was no longer published on the Sex and Violent Offender Registry. Healey had appealed the order, arguing the trial court should have stated the 1995 amendment to the Sex and Violent Offender Registration Act was ex post facto punishment as applied to him and the trial court should have specifically noted any extraneous statements that it had made.

Sharico Blakely v. State of Indiana (NFP)
02A03-1308-PC-313
Post conviction. Affirms denial of Blakely’s petition for post-conviction relief.

Jaquari Daquion Dodd v. State of Indiana (NFP)
45A04-1309-CR-462
Criminal. Affirms 3 ½-year sentence for robbery, a Class C felony.

Tehlynn Trotter v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A04-1308-CR-421
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor battery with bodily injury.

Lore Futrell v. KGRP, Inc. d/b/a The Kroger Co. (NFP)

Civil tort. Affirms summary judgment in favor of Kroger.

Christopher A. Fields v. State of Indiana (NFP)
66A04-1306-CR-314
Criminal. Affirms denial of Fields’ petition for writ of habeas corpus. Fields argued the trial court erred in calculating the class 1 credit time he earned while he was incarcerated for a parole violation. COA ruled Fields was not entitled to credit for the full 235 days he served because he had received a deprivation of 30 days credit time.

Darvelle White v. State of Indiana (NFP)
49A02-1307-CR-623
Criminal. Affirms White’s conviction of Class A misdemeanor operating a vehicle while intoxicated.

  1. Just an aside, but regardless of the outcome, I 'm proud of Judge William Hughes. He was the original magistrate on the Home place issue. He ruled for Home Place, and was primaried by Brainard for it. Their tool Poindexter failed to unseat Hughes, who won support for his honesty and courage throughout the county, and he was reelected Judge of Hamilton County's Superior Court. You can still stand for something and survive. Thanks, Judge Hughes!

  2. CCHP's real accomplishment is the 2015 law signed by Gov Pence that basically outlaws any annexation that is forced where a 65% majority of landowners in the affected area disagree. Regardless of whether HP wins or loses, the citizens of Indiana will not have another fiasco like this. The law Gov Pence signed is a direct result of this malgovernance.

  3. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  4. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  5. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.
