9 a.m. 49S04-1207-PC-431. Garrett was charged with two counts of rape and other offenses. A jury found him not guilty on Count 1, but it could not reach a verdict on Count 2. Count 2 was retried to the bench, and the trial court found him guilty. The convictions were affirmed on direct appeal in Garrett v. State, No. 49A02-0807-CR-609, slip op. (Ind. Ct. App. 2009), trans. denied. In post-conviction proceedings, Garrett contended trial and appellate counsel had been ineffective in not arguing that the retrial on the second rape charge violated his federal and state constitutional protections against double jeopardy. The Marion Superior Court denied relief and the Court of Appeals affirmed.

  1. I need an experienced attorney to handle a breach of contract matter. Kindly respond for more details. Graham Young

  2. I thought the slurs were the least grave aspects of her misconduct, since they had nothing to do with her being on the bench. Why then do I suspect they were the focus? I find this a troubling trend. At least she was allowed to keep her law license.

  3. Section 6 of Article I of the Indiana Constitution is pretty clear and unequivocal: "Section 6. No money shall be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious or theological institution."

  4. Video pen? Nice work, "JW"! Let this be a lesson and a caution to all disgruntled ex-spouses (or soon-to-be ex-spouses) . . . you may think that altercation is going to get you some satisfaction . . . it will not.

  5. First comment on this thread is a fitting final comment on this thread, as that the MCBA never answered Duncan's fine question, and now even Eric Holder agrees that the MCBA was in material error as to the facts: "I don't get it" from Duncan December 1, 2014 5:10 PM "The Grand Jury met for 25 days and heard 70 hours of testimony according to this article and they made a decision that no crime occurred. On what basis does the MCBA conclude that their decision was "unjust"? What special knowledge or evidence does the MCBA have that the Grand Jury hearing this matter was unaware of? The system that we as lawyers are sworn to uphold made a decision that there was insufficient proof that officer committed a crime. How can any of us say we know better what was right than the jury that actually heard all of the the evidence in this case."
