Indiana Court of Appeals
Tradale Jones v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Tradale Jones’ aggregate sentence of 50 years imposed for two counts of Level 1 felony rape and one count each of Level 3 felony robbery with a deadly weapon, Level 3 felony kidnapping while armed with a deadly weapon and Level 3 felony criminal confinement while armed with a deadly weapon. Finds that Jones’ sentence is not inappropriate in light of his character or the nature of his offense.
Bert McQueen, III v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Bert McQueen III’s aggregate 63-year sentence for felony murder. Finds that the nature of the offense and McQueen’s character, as demonstrated by his criminal history, do not justify a downward revision of his sentence and that the sentence for murder is not inappropriate.
Darius T. Sutton v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms the Harrison Superior Court’s decision to set Darius T. Sutton’s bail at $10,000 after he was charged with Level 3 felony rape and Level 6 felony sexual misconduct with a minor. Finds that the $10,000 bail was not excessive and that the trial court did not err in denying Sutton’s request for a reduction of the bail amount.
