Indiana Court of Appeals
Daveon L. Hendricks v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms and reverses in part Daveon L. Hendricks’ convictions of felony murder and Level 2 felony conspiracy to commit robbery resulting in serious bodily injury. Finds that although a witness’s statement admitted at trial violated Indiana Evidence Rule 804(b)(3), the statement did not violate Hendricks’ rights. Also finds that the admission of recorded jail phone calls was not an error or a violation of Hendricks’ rights, and Hendricks has waived his challenge to witness identifications of him. Finally, finds sufficient evidence supports Hendricks’ convictions, but his criminal acts were a single transaction not subject to multiple punishments. Remands to the Delaware Circuit Court with instructions to vacate Hendricks’ conviction of conspiracy to commit robbery.

Tyson Daishan Lamonte King v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Tyson Daishan Lamonte King’s conviction of Class A misdemeanor driving while suspended. Finds evidence presented at trial in Marshall Superior Court was sufficient to show that King knew his license was suspended.

Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the termination of mother S.I.’s parental rights. Finds the Putnam Circuit Court’s termination order was not clearly erroneous.
