Court of Appeals of Indiana
Robert A. Kissinger v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Robert Kissinger’s conviction and 30-year sentence for Level 1 felony child molesting. Finds the DeKalb Circuit Court did not abuse its discretion in admitting a nurse’s report, and even if it did, the error was harmless. Also finds the evidence is sufficient to identify Kissinger as the perpetrator and to support his conviction. Finally, finds Kissinger’s advisory sentence is not an outlier.
K.P. v. Indiana Department of Child Services (mem. dec.)
Juvenile termination of parental rights. Affirms the involuntary termination of Mother K.P.’s parental rights to her minor children. Finds the Howard Circuit Court’s findings of fact support the conclusion that the conditions keeping the children away from K.P. were unlikely to change. Also finds the trial court did not err in determining termination of parental rights was in the children’s best interest.
