Criminal. Affirms Charles Grays’ convictions of Level 2 felony dealing in cocaine, Level 4 felony unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and Class A misdemeanor operating while suspended, and his sentence of 33 years, with 25 years executed and eight years suspended to probation. Finds the Elkhart Circuit Court didn’t err when it denied Grays’ motions to suppress evidence, or in instructing the jury. Also finds his sentence isn’t inappropriate.
Rufus Edward Jones v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms the revocation of Rufus E. Jones’ probation and the order that he serve three years of his previously suspended sentence in the Indiana Department of Correction. Finds the Marion Superior Court didn’t err.
