Indiana Court of Appeals

Gabriel J. Sharkey v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms sentence following guilty plea to Class D felony intimidation. Sharkey’s 18-month suspended sentence is appropriate in light of the nature of the crime and his character.

Willie Huguley v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Finds Huguley cannot receive belated appellate review of the denial of his petition for post-conviction relief, but remands to the trial court to determine whether he has been without fault and diligent in pursuing his original appeal of child molesting charges.

Lisa Reynolds v. Daniel Capps
Small claim. Reverses order requiring Reynolds to vacate her apartment. Reynolds was denied due process when the initial hearing was presided over by the court reporter instead of the judge.

Dionne Harris v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Post conviction. Affirms denial of petition for post-conviction relief.

Jason Poole v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms convictions of Class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and Class B misdemeanor possession of a knife with an automatic blade.

  1. Heritage, what Heritage? The New Age is dawning .... an experiment in disordered liberty and social fragmentation is upon us .... "Carmel City Council approved a human rights ordinance with a 4-3 vote Monday night after hearing about two hours of divided public testimony. The ordinance bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, among other traits. Council members Rick Sharp, Carol Schleif, Sue Finkam and Ron Carter voted in favor of it. The three council members opposing it—Luci Snyder, Kevin Rider and Eric Seidensticker—all said they were against any form of discrimination, but had issues with the wording and possible unintended consequences of the proposal." Kardashian is the new Black.

  2. Can anyone please tell me if anyone is appealing the law that certain sex offenders can't be on school property. How is somebody supposed to watch their children's sports games or graduations, this law needs revised such as sex offenders that are on school property must have another non-offender adult with them at all times while on school property. That they must go to the event and then leave directly afterwards. This is only going to hurt the children of the offenders and the father/ son mother/ daughter vice versa relationship. Please email me and let me know if there is a group that is appealing this for reasons other than voting and religion. Thank you.

  3. Should any attorney who argues against the abortion industry, or presents arguments based upon the Founders' concept of Higher Law, (like that marriage precedes the State) have to check in with the Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program for a mandatory mental health review? Some think so ... that could certainly cut down on cases such as this "cluttering up" the SCOTUS docket ... use JLAP to deny all uber conservative attorneys licenses and uber conservative representation will tank. If the ends justify the means, why not?
