C.V. v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Juvenile. Affirms C.V.’s adjudication as a delinquent child for acts that would be Level 6 felony perjury and Class A misdemeanor theft if committed by an adult. Finds there was sufficient evidence to support C.V.’s adjudication.

In re Termination of the Parent-Child Relationship of: I.C. & J.C., Jr. (Minor Children) and J.C. (Father) v. The Indiana Department of Child Services (mem. dec.)
Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the termination of J.C.’s parental rights to I.C. and J.C., Jr. Finds the evidence presented by the Department of Child Services clearly supports the Vanderburgh Superior Court’s findings and conclusions that there is a reasonable probability that the conditions that resulted in removal of the children will not be remedied, and that termination was in the children’s best interests.
