The following Indiana Supreme Court opinion was posted after IL deadline Tuesday:
Kevin L. Hampton v. State of Indiana
Post conviction. Affirms the denial of Hampton’s claim of ineffective assistance of appellate counsel, but holds that an instruction on the requirement of proof beyond a reasonable doubt does not obviate the necessity, where the conduct of the defendant constituting the commission of a charged offense is proven exclusively by circumstantial evidence, of an additional jury instruction advising the jury that proof by circumstantial evidence must be so conclusive and sure as to exclude every reasonable theory of innocence.
