Court of Appeals of Indiana
Dustin A. Lane v. State of Indiana
Criminal. Revises Dustin Lane’s aggregate sentence from 3,000 days to 300 days and remands to the Lawrence Superior Court to enter a sentencing order consistent with the appellate opinion. Finds Lane has met his burden to demonstrate that his sentence is inappropriate in light of the nature of the offenses and his character. Judge Dana Kenworthy dissents with separate opinion.

Civil tort.
