Indiana Court of Appeals
Timothy Schepers v. State of Indiana
22A01-1201-CR-39
Criminal. Affirms on interlocutory appeal a trial court denial of a motion to dismiss several drug charges and a Class C felony count of neglect of a dependent. The court held that Schepers’ filing of a pro se motion for a speedy trial and motion to dismiss for violation of Criminal Rule 4 were filed while he was represented by a public defender and that he did not clearly and unequivocally assert his right to self-representation. Remands cause for trial.

52A02-1205-DR-399
Domestic relation. Reverses denial of Stranahan’s petition to terminate maintenance obligation and remands with instructions for the court to enter an order granting Stranahan’s petition.

Trenton Jones v. State of Indiana (NFP)
71A03-1112-CR-594
Criminal. Affirms refusal to give instruction to jury on involuntary manslaughter and finds the state produced sufficient evidence to sustain Jones’ conviction of murder.

Michael Dominique v. State of Indiana (NFP)
34A02-1205-CR-424
Criminal.  Affirms sentence for Class C felonies battery resulting in serious bodily injury and burglary. Remands for a correction to the sentencing order.

  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!!!
