1 p.m. 75A03-1209-CR-402. Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Bloomington. The State filed charging information alleging that Robert Corbin sent Facebook messages of a sexual nature to a sixteen-year-old student who attended the school corporation that employed Corbin.  The State alleged that, in these messages, Corbin asked the student to “physically take care of” his sexual arousal, asked what size her breasts were, asked if he could see her breasts in person, and asked if she could sneak out of her house.  Corbin subsequently filed a motion to dismiss, claiming that the facts alleged in the charging information did not constitute attempt as a matter of law.  The trial court denied Corbin’s motion to dismiss and certified its order for interlocutory appeal.  This court assumed discretionary interlocutory jurisdiction of this case to consider whether Corbin’s actions as alleged in the charging information are sufficient as a matter of law to constitute a substantial step toward the crime of child seduction.

  1. Is it possible to amend an order for child support due to false paternity?

  2. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  3. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  4. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  5. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!
