Indiana Court of Appeals
Leslie Ann Grider v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Reverses 19-year sentence following guilty pleas to two counts of Class C felony forgery, four counts of Class D felony theft, and two counts of Class D felony check fraud. The language of the plea agreement indicates the parties’ intention that the trial court would impose concurrent sentences on all counts regardless of the separate cause numbers. Orders Grider’s sentences to be concurrent for a total of eight years.
Rick Singleton, et al. v. Fifth Third Bank
Mortgage foreclosure. Reverses ruling in favor of Fifth Third Bank on its renewed motion for entry of agreed final judgment. Based upon the forbearance agreement and a directive to wire funds to make the final payment, Singleton’s payment was not untimely and did not constitute a termination event under the forbearance agreement. Remands for further proceedings.
Harry E. Knauff, Jr. and Carolyn R. Knauff v. Nathan T. Hovermale and Sarah E. Hovermale
Civil plenary. Affirms judgment quieting title in certain real property in the names of the Hovermales following a bench trial. The Knauffs didn’t show that the trial court clearly erred when it concluded that they failed to establish the control element of adverse possession. Judge Kirsch dissents without opinion.
Lonnie D. Covey v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction and sentence for Class C felony forgery.
Lamar Herron, Jr. v. State of Indiana (NFP)
