Indiana’s high court has granted transfer in a case that left the Court of Appeals divided.
In Corey Fletcher v. State of Indiana, Nos. 79S02-1204-CR-208 and 79A02-1009-CR-1096, the Indiana Court of Appeals reversed a trial court’s denial of Corey Fletcher’s motion for discharge, but Judge Ezra Friedlander dissented.
The transfer list shows six cases the justices unanimously denied transfer, and one that the court did not unanimously deny – Jerome Maxwell v. State of Indiana, No. 49A04-1101-CR-6. Justice Frank Sullivan would have granted transfer in that case, in which Jerome Maxwell raised several issues for review, including whether his conviction of two Class C felony child molesting charges violated double jeopardy.
Other cases denied transfer were: Alexander Gul v. City of Bloomington Housing and Neighborhood Development Department, No. 53A01-1106-OV-256; Justin L. Hargrove v. State of Indiana, No. 67A01-1103-CR-112; State of Indiana v. Johnnie S. McCaa, No. 56A04-1107-CR-341; Brett Zagorac v. State of Indiana, No. 64A03-1011-CR-589; In the Matter of the Estate of Melissa K. Patrick: Yvonne Griffith as Personal Representative of the Estate of Melissa K. Patrick v. Jason Patrick, No. 17A03-1104-ES-190; and Bart A. Dewald v. State of Indiana, No. 49A04-1101-CR-6.
