Indiana Court of Appeals Oral Argument
In Re: Young v. State 20A04‐1112‐CR‐699
The scheduled panel members are Judges Michael P. Barnes, Paul D. Mathias, and Nancy H. Vaidik.

Reasonable Doubt Lies in the Eyes of the Beholder
James Young appeals his conviction for Class D felony domestic battery and Class D felony strangulation following a
jury trial. Young’s wife, the victim, did not testify at trial, but two firefighters and a police officer who had spoken
with her at or near the time of the incidents involved were allowed to testify concerning the substance of the
statements she made to them.
Young presents the following issues for review on appeal: (1) whether the firefighters’ and police officer’s testimony
regarding the victim’s statement to them was a violation of the Confrontation Clause within the Sixth Amendment of
the Constitution of the United States or permissible questioning during an ongoing emergency; (2) whether the trial
court abused its discretion in concluding that the victim’s statement to the police officer, more than 45 minutes
after the incidents, was an excited utterance; and (3) whether there was sufficient evidence to prove that Young
committed the offenses in a child’s physical presence so as to elevate the domestic battery offense to a Class D
felony.

  1. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
