Indiana Court of Appeals
Scott Speers v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class C felony burglary and Class D felony theft. The trial court properly denied Speers’ motion for discharge under Rule 4(C) as much of the delay in bringing Speers to trial was attributable to him. The direct examination of the lead detective did not present evidence in such a way as to crate an evidentiary harpoon.
Heather McWhorter v. Bill McWhorter (NFP)
Domestic relation. Affirms decision to divide the marital estate equally and treatment of the 401(k) debt after the couple took out a loan against Bill McWhorter’s plan to pay part of the down payment on property in Denver. Reverses portion of the June 4, 2102, order that granted Heather McWhorter’s request to rescind the order entered pursuant to the Denver real estate agreement and remands with instructions for the trial court to reinstate the Denver agreement. Chief Judge Robb dissents.
