Indiana Court of Appeals
Joseph D. Reed v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Joseph Reed’s 8½-year sentence for conviction in Wayne Superior Court of Level 5 felony battery resulting in bodily injury to a public safety official with a habitual offender enhancement. Finds his sentence is not inappropriate in light of the nature of his offense and his character.
Antwan Rush v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Post conviction. Affirms the denial of Antwan Rush’s petition for post conviction relief in Marion Superior Court. Finds Rush’s trial counsel rendered effective assistance and that Rush did not prove the existence of newly discovered evidence.
Morris W. Haas v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms the 3½-year executed sentence that Morris Haas received for offenses he committed in three separate causes for Level 6 felony invasion of privacy and two counts of Class A misdemeanor criminal trespass. Finds his sentence is not inappropriate in light of the nature of the offenses and his character. Also finds the Ripley Superior Court did not abuse its discretion in revoking his probation and ordering him to serve the remainder of his previously suspended sentences in the Department of Correction.
