Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Court of Appeals travels to Marion and South Bend this week to hear arguments in an appeal of voluntary manslaughter and criminal recklessness convictions, and a case involving a conviction of child solicitation.

The appellate court will be at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion Tuesday to hear Jeremy D. Simpson v. State of Indiana, No. 46A04-0802-CR-103. The LaPorte Circuit case involves Jeremy Simpson's convictions of voluntary manslaughter and criminal recklessness. He argues the state failed to rebut his self-defense claim, among other issues. Chief Judge John Baker and Judges Terry Crone and Cale Bradford will hear the case at 11 a.m. in the Globe Theater on the mall in the Student Center, 4201 S. Washington St.

On Wednesday, Judges Crone and Bradford, along with Judge Michael Barnes, head to Indiana University - South Bend to hear Dustin Neff v. State of Indiana, No. 29A02-0904-CR-332. Dustin Neff was convicted of child solicitation after driving to an arranged meeting place in Hamilton County to meet who he believed was a 12-year-old girl from Georgia he spoke to online.

Neff claims there's insufficient evidence to prove the offense as charged and the state failed to prove venue in Hamilton County. Neff is a resident of Madison County. Arguments begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Dorothy & Darwin Wiekamp Hall on campus, 1700 Mishawaka Ave.

  2. From the article's fourth paragraph: "Her work underscores the blurry lines in Russia between the government and businesses . . ." Obviously, the author of this piece doesn't pay much attention to the "blurry lines" between government and businesses that exist in the United States. And I'm not talking only about Trump's alleged conflicts of interest. When lobbyists for major industries (pharmaceutical, petroleum, insurance, etc) have greater access to this country's elected representatives than do everyday individuals (i.e., voters), then I would say that the lines between government and business in the United States are just as blurry, if not more so, than in Russia.

  3. For some strange reason this story, like many on this ezine that question the powerful, seems to have been released in two formats. Prior format here: http://www.theindianalawyer.com/nominees-selected-for-us-attorney-in-indiana/PARAMS/article/44263 That observed, I must note that it is quite refreshing that denizens of the great unwashed (like me) can be allowed to openly question powerful elitists at ICE MILLER who are on the public dole like Selby. Kudos to those at this ezine who understand that they cannot be mere lapdogs to the powerful and corrupt, lest freedom bleed out. If you wonder why the Senator resisted Selby, consider reading the comments here for a theory: http://www.theindianalawyer.com/nominees-selected-for-us-attorney-in-indiana/PARAMS/article/44263

  4. Why is it a crisis that people want to protect their rights themselves? The courts have a huge bias against people appearing on their own behalf and these judges and lawyers will face their maker one day and answer for their actions.

  5. State's rights, civil rights and human rights are all in jeopardy with Trump in the WH and Sessions running Justice.
