10:30 a.m. 49A02-1205-CR-380. Walker was fighting with another man. Police repeatedly told the men to lie on the ground and stop fighting. When they did not do so, an officer said that if they did not lie flat on the ground immediately, they would both be tased. One man immediately dropped to the ground. Walker, with fists still clenched, stared at the officer for a second and then began to walk toward him. Two or three times, the officer told Walker to get on the ground. Walker did not obey and continued to approach. The officer deployed his taser. Following a bench trial in the Marion Superior Court, Walker was convicted of resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor. The Court of Appeals found sufficient evidence to support the conviction, and affirmed. Walker has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.

  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."
