Indiana Supreme Court had posted no opinions at IL deadline.

Indiana Court of Appeals
James Stewart v. State of Indiana
49A04-1001-CR-48
Criminal. Vacates Class C felony robbery conviction and corresponding four-year sentence because Stewart’s convictions for both felony murder and the underlying felony of robbery violate the prohibitions of double jeopardy. Finds there was sufficient evidence to support Stewart’s convictions of seven counts of felony murder, six counts of criminal confinement as Class B felonies, Class B felony burglary, Class A misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license, and adjudication as a habitual offender. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in excluding certain hearsay statements or by admitting certain photographs, and Stewart isn’t entitled to the procedural protections of the Life Without Parole Statute. Judge Bradford concurs in part and concurs in result in part.

Gregory E. Staten v. State of Indiana
87A04-1005-CR-393
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor operating a vehicle while intoxicated endangering a person. The trial court properly admitted Staten’s blood alcohol test results and the state presented sufficient evidence to support his conviction beyond a reasonable doubt. Vacates finding that he committed the Class C traffic infraction by failing to obey a stop sign and the related $5 fine. Judge Crone concurs in part and dissents in part.

Marlan Bonds v. State of Indiana (NFP)
20A04-1005-PC-315
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief.

Tommy L. Borders v. State of Indiana (NFP)
11A05-1001-CR-203
Criminal. Affirms convictions of and 45-year sentence for Class A felony possession of methamphetamine, Class C felony possession of methamphetamine, Class D felony maintaining a common nuisance, and Class A misdemeanors possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

  1. Here an atheist worries about the Indiana rules, when the real and demonstrated problems are (1) anti-Christian bias and (2) a refusal to follow their own rules as to the Indiana Board of Law Examiners! Such sweet, sweet irony! See, e.g. https://www.scribd.com/doc/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert and https://www.scribd.com/doc/312841269/Thomas-More-Society-Amicus-Brown-v-Ind-Bd-of-Law-Examiners

  2. Child Advocates profited over 6 million last year alone. They are bullies & do not act in children's best interests but rather their own. They placed my children full time with their unlicensed alcoholic father despite recommendations for over 5 yrs. Meanwhile my children have medical conditions left untreated living with their father and their education has suffered greatly. Get these people terminated!!!
