The following Indiana Supreme Court opinion was posted after IL deadline Tuesday:
Robert Corbin v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms trial court denial of a motion to dismiss a charge of attempted child seduction and remands for further proceedings. Whether Corbin’s Facebook communications propositioning a 16-year-old student for sex constituted the required substantial step toward the crime is a question not ripe for dismissal on interlocutory appeal. Justices found the charges match the statutory elements sufficient to survive a motion to dismiss at this time.

Wednesday’s opinions
Indiana Supreme Court

In re the Paternity of D.M.Y., et al., M.R. v. B.Y.
Juvenile. Grants transfer and reverses trial court order determining father’s arrearage to be $13,055 as of July 29, 2013, and remands for further proceedings to recalculate father’s arrearage to provide him credit for the $7,025.84 payment. Father never received credit for his payment.

Indiana Court of Appeals
James Robinson v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Reverses denial of Robinson’s motion for educational credit time. The trial court is the proper authority to determine whether he was entitled to the credit time he seeks, but the trial court has not yet addressed whether Robinson met the requirement for the credit. Remands for further proceedings.

Lathay Davis v. State of Indiana (NFP)
Criminal. Affirms conviction of Class A misdemeanor battery.
