9:45 a.m. 75S03-1401-CR-13. Corbin, a teacher, sent messages to a student asking her to take care of his sexual arousal, to sneak out of the house so he could pick her up, etc.  Corbin was charged with attempted child seduction, Indiana Code section 35-42-4-7.  The Starke Circuit Court denied Corbin’s motion to dismiss.  In this interlocutory appeal, the Court of Appeals reversed, deciding that Corbin’s internet-based solicitations did not constitute a substantial step toward the crime of child seduction.  Corbin v. State, 999 N.E.2d 70 (Ind. Ct. App. 2013), vacated.  The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
