Indiana Court of Appeals
Douglas A. Guilmette v. State of Indiana
71A04-1205-CR-250
Criminal. Affirms conviction for murder. The court found although the trial court did err by admitting DNA from a bloody shoe into evidence, the error was harmless because other substantial and independent evidence supported the conviction. It also ruled the trial court did not abuse its discretion by instructing the jury on accomplice liability, and it ruled the evidence was ample to sustain the murder conviction.  

Gregory L. Saylor v. State of Indiana (NFP)
02A03-1209-PC-396
Post conviction. Affirms post-conviction court’s denial of Saylor’s petition for post-conviction relief. Found Saylor’s counsel did properly advise concerning the benefits and consequences of accepting a plea offer. Also ruled his counsel did raise Saylor’s mental disability as a mitigating factor at sentencing.
