The following Indiana Supreme Court opinions were issued after IL deadline Monday.
Jacob Fuller v.State of Indiana

48S02-1406-CR-364
Criminal. Affirms conviction of two counts of murder but remands to the trial court with orders to reduce the aggregate sentence from 150 years in prison to 85 years in prison. Fuller was 15 when he participated in the shooting deaths of Anderson residents Keya Prince and Stephen Streeter with another minor and an 18-year-old. Though the trial court sentence was within the allowable range, imposing it would mean denial of hope and assurance he would remain in prison the rest of his days, making good behavior or character improvement immaterial.

48S02-1406-CR-363

Brown was 16 when he participated in the shooting deaths of Anderson residents Keya Prince and Stephen Streeter with another minor and an 18-year-old. Though the trial court sentence was within the allowable range, imposing it would mean denial of hope and assurance he would remain in prison the rest of his days, making good behavior or character improvement immaterial.

  1. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
