Indiana Court of Appeals
Christine Marie Lindhorst v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms Christine Marie Lindhorst’s conviction of battery resulting in serious bodily injury to a person younger than 14 and neglect of a dependent resulting in serious bodily injury, both as Level 3 felonies, and her six-year executed sentence. Finds any error in limiting Lindhorst’s cross-examination of Dr. David Smith did not prejudice her defense and was harmless. Also finds there is sufficient evidence to support the Allen Superior Court’s determination Lindhorst knowingly or intentionally inflicted the injury upon S.E. and knowingly or intentionally placed S.E. in a dangerous situation by delaying medical assistance. Finally, finds Lindhorst’s sentence is not inappropriate.
