Indiana Court of Appeals
C. Subah Packer v. The Indiana Department of Workforce Development
Agency action. Affirms determination of a liability administrative law judge that a horse stable owner must pay unemployment compensation taxes plus interest and penalties for employees during the years 2008-2011 because they performed some amount of non-agricultural labor. Because employment records did not establish the amount of wages paid to workers for agricultural or non-agricultural work, a determination that Packer must pay taxes on total compensation for the audit years is not arbitrary, unreasonable, against the evidence or contrary to law.
Antrooine A. Manning, Jr. v. State of Indiana
Post Conviction. Affirms denial of Manning’s petition for post-conviction relief. Finds although Manning was a passenger in the getaway vehicle, his instruction to the driver to “take off” was sufficient to show he resisted law enforcement as an accomplice.
Terry Rexing v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction for dealing in methamphetamine, a Class A felony; possession of chemical reagents or precursors with intent to manufacture a controlled substance, a Class D felony; maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony; and criminal recklessness, a Class B misdemeanor. Also affirms aggregate 60-year sentence and status as a habitual offender.
Jimmie Jones v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction for one count each of robbery and criminal confinement, as Class B felonies.
Jerry Downs v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms denial of Downs’s motion to correct erroneous sentence.
