The Indiana Supreme Court denied transfer in 16 cases it reviewed in the week ending July 13, according to the transfer list released Monday.

The justices rejected transfer on 11 criminal cases, and denial of transfer was unanimous except for three criminal cases in which Justice Frank Sullivan would have granted transfer.

Those three cases were:

  • Ashanti Clemons v. State of Indiana, 49A02-1108-PC-737, in which the Court of Appeals affirmed denial of post-conviction relief for Clemons’ voluntary manslaughter conviction.
  • Douglas P. Wilson, Jr. v. State of Indiana, 79A05-1107-CR-350, in which a drug conviction and sentence were affirmed for a man who fled his vehicle that later was searched.
  • Kenneth E. Russell v. State of Indiana, 28A01-1112-CR-559, in which a sentence for two counts of battery was affirmed on appeal.
