Indiana Court of Appeals
Shane L. Keller v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms in part, reverses in part and remands the 50-year aggregate sentence for convictions of two counts of Class B felony burglary, one count of Class C felony burglary, three counts of Class D felony theft, two counts of Class D felony receiving stolen property, and enhancement for habitual offender. Remands with instructions to vacate two receiving stolen property convictions and the sentences for them because they violate the prohibition against double jeopardy with respect to the theft convictions.

In Re: The Marriage of: Meleeka Clary-Ghosh v. Michael Ghosh
Domestic relation. Affirms trial court’s modification of parenting time and child support; the award of attorney fees to Michael Ghosh as a sanction for contempt; and the denial of Clary-Ghosh’s request for appointment of a parenting time coordinator. The trial court did not abuse its discretion in modifying Clary-Ghosh’s parenting time in imputing income to her in calculating child support. The trial court did not abuse its discretion when it ordered her to pay a portion of Ghosh’s attorney fees because of her contempt, and no reversible error was established in the trial court’s denial of Clary-Ghosh’s request for a parenting time coordinator.

Jamie Thomson v. Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and Michael Borkowski, M.D.
