Indiana Court of Appeals
In Re: The Paternity of M.F.; N.F. v. J.T.
Juvenile. Reverses portion of the order finding mother N.F. in contempt because she presented a prima facie case that the trial court abused its discretion. Reverses order that mother pay attorney fees based on the contempt finding. Affirms portion of the order that requires N.F. buy a plane ticket for M.F. to visit her father in Florida. Judge Kirsch dissents without opinion.
Timothy Southward v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms conviction of and sentence for possessing material capable of causing bodily injury while incarcerated as a Class C felon. Although the trial court abused its discretion in admitting the Evidence Rule 404(b) evidence based on the intent exception, it does not rise to the level of fundamental error. Finds sufficient evidence to support the conviction and his sentence is not inappropriate.
Roy Hersley v. State of Indiana (NFP)
