Court of Appeals of Indiana
Britni N. Wihebrink v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Affirms Britni Wihebrink’s sentence to 30 years, entered pursuant to a plea agreement capping her sentence for a Level 1 felony at 30 years. Finds that because Wihebrink’s argument is not one of illegality under Crider v. State, 984 N.E.2d 618 (Ind. 2013), she did not have the right to challenge her sentence on direct appeal because her plea agreement waived the right to appeal her sentence. Also finds Wihebrink is not an “eligible defendant” under Post-Conviction Rule 2. Judge Edward Najam dissents with separate opinion.

D.E. v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Juvenile. Affirms the placement of juvenile D.E. in the Department of Correction following his adjudication as a delinquent child. Finds D.E.’s previous less-restrictive placements have been unsuccessful, so the juvenile court did not abuse its discretion when it placed him in the DOC.
