9 a.m. 20S03-1208-CR-499. Hawkins was tried in absentia and without counsel in the Elkhart Superior Court. He was found guilty of two counts of non-support of a dependent child as Class C felonies, and sentenced via videoconference to consecutive terms of four years but with all suspended and to be administered through a community corrections program. A divided Court of Appeals determined his due process rights were not violated by the trial or absence of counsel, that he had waived for appellate review argument relating to sentencing via videoconference, and that consecutive sentences were not an abuse of discretion but that one of the felonies must be reduced to a Class D felony.
