Indiana Court of Appeals
Jacob Skipworth v. State of Indiana

Criminal. Affirms the Marion Superior Court’s decision to order Jacob Skipworth to complete 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling as a condition of his probation for his convictions of criminal confinement and strangulation, both Level 6 felonies. Finds that the trial court did not abuse its discretion in ordering domestic violence counseling. Also finds that the trial court’s sentencing order and abstract of judgment contain clerical errors. Remands with instructions to correct the clerical errors.

Christopher Bryant v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Post conviction. Affirms the denial of Christopher Bryant’s petition for post-conviction relief. Finds that Bryant’s trial and appellate counsel were not ineffective.

Christopher C. Brown v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Christopher Brown’s convictions of two counts of child seduction as Level 5 felonies. Finds that the evidence is sufficient to sustain Brown’s convictions.
