COA to hear challenge to sex offender monitoring program

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

An Allen County man’s argument that the state’s Sex Offender Management and Monitoring Program is unconstitutional will be heard Tuesday by a panel of the Indiana Court of Appeals.

David Bleeke was convicted of Class B felony attempted criminal deviate conduct and Class D felony residential entry and served three-and-a-half years in prison before his release to parole from the Department of Correction in 2008.

Bleeke argues that the management and monitoring program is unconstitutional and its promulgation did not comport with I.C. 11-13-3-4(b). Bleeke also argues that conditions of parole under the program were made without an individualized determination related to Bleeke’s reintegration into the community and that parole conditions under the program are unconstitutionally vague and overbroad.

An Allen Superior court granted summary judgment to the state in David Bleeke v. State of Indiana, 02A05-1201-PL-25, prior to this appeal.

Oral arguments are scheduled at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Room 413 of the Indiana Statehouse. Hearing the case will be judges Elaine Brown and Ezra Friedlander and Senior Judge Carr Darden.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
