10:30 a.m. 49S02-1405-CR-338. Blount was charged with possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon.  At the jury trial in the Marion Superior Court, a detective was allowed to testify that witnesses supplied him with the nickname of the person they believed fired the gun. The Court of Appeals reversed the conviction deciding that the “course-of-investigation” testimony was inadmissible hearsay.  Blount v. State, 4 N.E.3d 787 (Ind. Ct. App. 2014), vacated.  The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
