1 p.m. 89A01-1608-CR-01783. Valpo Law School. The State charged Todd Stigleman with fourteen counts related to interactions with his estranged wife and alleged he was an habitual offender.  A jury found him guilty of all charges, but the trial court entered judgment of conviction only on four counts of Class A felony kidnapping and two counts of Class C felony stalking.  He was sentenced to forty years for each Class A felony conviction, to be served concurrently, and to six years on the Class C felony convictions, to be served concurrently with each other but consecutively to the Class A felony sentences.  The trial court also imposed a thirty-year habitual offender enhancement, resulting in a total sentence of seventy-six years.  Stigleman appeals his convictions and sentence, contending the trial court erred in admitting evidence of other acts in violation of Evidence Rule 404(b); the trial court erred in denying his motion to sever the counts; and his sentence is both erroneous and inappropriate.

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
