Man’s convictions affirmed, but court orders record set straight

An Indianapolis man lost his criminal appeal Tuesday, but the Indiana Court of Appeals ordered the trial court to correct an abstract of judgment that incorrectly recorded a felony conviction.

In Jamar Washington v. State of Indiana, 49A02-1202-CR-79, the court found no errors in Washington’s convictions of Class D felony battery, Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct that arose from a domestic dispute outside a downtown nightclub in May 2011.

“Although we affirm Washington’s convictions, the State concedes that the trial court made a clerical error on the abstract of judgment. It states that Washington was convicted of Class D felony resisting law enforcement. The actual judgment of conviction, however, states that Washington was convicted of Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement,” Judge Michael Barnes wrote for the unanimous panel.

“We therefore remand for the trial court to enter a corrected abstract of judgment accurately reflecting that Washington was convicted of Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement.”
