9 a.m. 29A02-1208-CR-694. When a police officer initiated a traffic stop, Anderson opened the door and ran. He was found hiding in a backyard shed. A woman standing on her back deck, had seen Anderson run by and heard a “thump, thump, thump.” Anderson told police he had thrown out a bag of marijuana; jail officials found marijuana on him when he was searched at the jail. Approximately an hour later, the woman saw a firearm in a pile of snow on her deck. Following a jury trial, Anderson was convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, a Class B felony, and other offenses. The Court of Appeals affirmed in Anderson v. State, No. 29A02-1208-CR-694 (Ind. Ct. App. Apr. 4, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), trans. pending. Anderson has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal on grounds the evidence is insufficient to sustain the conviction.

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  5. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer.
