Indiana Court of Appeals
Robert McAnalley v. State of Indiana
18A-CR-01099
Criminal. Affirms Robert McAnalley’s conviction of Level 4 felony possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and his guilty plea to a habitual offender enhancement. Finds the admission of handgun evidence did not violate McAnalley’s federal or state constitutional protections. Finds the Marion Superior Court did not abuse its discretion under the circumstances. Judge Cale Bradford concurs in result in a separate opinion.

Christopher E. Washington v. Mark R. Sevier (mem. dec.)
19A-PL-00549
Civil plenary. Affirms the denial of Christopher Washington’s motion to file an amended complaint and the grant of the state’s motion to dismiss his complaint against Mark Sevier. Finds the LaPorte Superior Court judge was not biased or prejudiced against Washington, and thus his challenge to the trial court’s orders does not prevail.

George Foote v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
19A-CR-00481
Criminal. Affirms the Greene Circuit Court’s denial of George Foote Jr.’s motion for permission to file a belated notice of appeal. Finds the trial court did not abuse its discretion in denying Foote’s motion.

Jeremy J. Haug v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
19A-CR-00642
Criminal. Affirms Jeremy Haug’s conviction for murder. Reverses his conviction for Level 3 felony criminal confinement and Level 3 felony aggravated battery. Remands for the Morgan Superior Court to enter a sentence consistent with the opinion.
