COA to hear arguments at school

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Court of Appeals travels to Oxford Tuesday to hear arguments in a drug case. In William E. Riley v. State of Indiana, No. 45A03-0903-PC-110, William Riley was convicted in 1996 of dealing in a look-alike substance as a Class D felony, two counts of dealing in cocaine as Class A felonies, possession of cocaine as a Class D felony, and was found to be a habitual offender.

His convictions and 60-year sentence were affirmed on direct appeal in 1999; his petition for post-conviction relief was also denied earlier this year. Riley argues his trial counsel was ineffective for failing to offer into evidence a taped conversation between the confidential informant and the deputy prosecutor to discredit the confidential informant's testimony.

Judges Paul Mathias, Patricia Riley and Margret Robb will hear the case at 1 p.m. in the auditorium of Benton Central Jr.-Sr. High School, 4241 E. 300 South, Oxford.

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer.
