9:45 a.m. 49S02-1312-MI-790. When the State petitioned for forfeiture of Sargent’s car after her conviction for theft, the Marion Superior Court granted the State summary judgment. The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that a sufficient nexus exists between the theft and the car and that neither an exemption statute, Indiana Code section 34-55-10-2, nor Article 1, Section 22 of the Indiana Constitution prohibits the forfeiture.  Sargent v. State, 985 N.E.2d 1108 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), reh’g denied, vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
