Indiana Court of Appeals
Francisco Onan Delao v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms four convictions of Class A felony dealing in cocaine. Delao waived any error in the admission of the audio recordings of certain cocaine transactions because he failed to present a sufficient record for appellate review. His sentence is appropriate in light of his character and offenses.
Brian S. Christie v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms order revoking Christie’s community corrections placement and order he serve the entirety of his remaining sentence at the Department of Correction. The trial court’s judicial notice and its dispositional order were proper.
State of Ohio Conviction Against Mickey Shawn Gambler
Criminal. Reverses order that Gambler be removed from the Indiana sex offender registry. The trial court erred by not providing notice to the appropriate parties or holding a hearing. Remands for the trial court to dismiss the case without prejudice subject to further proceedings in the event Gambler files a sufficient petition.

Post conviction. Reverses denial of petition for permission to file a belated appeal of the denial of Taylor’s petition for post-conviction relief.
