Stephen Peele v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
21A-CR-726
Criminal. Affirms the denial of Stephen Peele’s petition for removal from the sex offender registry. Finds Peele has failed to carry his burden of showing an ex post facto violation, and the Marion Superior Court did not abuse its discretion in denying his petition for removal from the sex offender registry.

Omar Gene Burton v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
20A-CR-2427
Criminal. Affirms the Jennings Circuit Court’s order regarding Omar Burton’s credit days.

Declines to address Burton’s claim that his guilty plea was involuntary because that claim is not properly before the Indiana Court of Appeals.
