Indiana Court of Appeals
Mary K. Davis v. State of Indiana
Post conviction. Reverses denial of petition for post-conviction relief. Orders Davis immediately released pending resolution of this appeal. The post-conviction court’s findings and conclusions were contrary to law. The state’s notice of violation was filed on the day Davis’ probation ended such that there was no period of probation to be tolled, which means the trial court could not continue her terms of probation pursuant to Ind. Code § 35-38-2-3(c).

T.S. v. State of Indiana
Juvenile. Affirms true findings T.S. committed what would be Class B felony robbery and Class A misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license if committed by an adult. Finds that judicial estoppel does not apply to juvenile-delinquency proceedings for the same reasons that it does not apply to criminal proceedings.

Jennifer L. Barwick v. Joseph A. Ceruti
