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. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  2. I'm the poor soul who spent over 10 years in prison with many many other prisoners trying to kill me for being charged with a sex offense THAT I DID NOT COMMIT i was in jail for a battery charge for helping a friend leave a boyfriend who beat her I've been saying for over 28 years that i did not and would never hurt a child like that mine or anybody's child but NOBODY wants to believe that i might not be guilty of this horrible crime or think that when i say that ALL the paperwork concerning my conviction has strangely DISAPPEARED or even when the long beach judge re-sentenced me over 14 months on a already filed plea bargain out of another districts court then had it filed under a fake name so i could not find while trying to fight my conviction on appeal in a nut shell people are ALWAYS quick to believe the worst about some one well I DID NOT HURT ANY CHILD EVER IN MY LIFE AND HAVE SAID THIS FOR ALMOST 30 YEARS please if anybody can me get some kind of justice it would be greatly appreciated respectfully written wrongly accused Brian Valenti

  3. A high ranking Indiana supreme Court operative caught red handed leading a group using the uber offensive N word! She must denounce or be denounced! (Or not since she is an insider ... rules do not apply to them). Evidence here: http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  4. A high ranking bureaucrat with Ind sup court is heading up an organization celebrating the formal N word!!! She must resign and denounce! http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
