Court of Appeals of Indiana
Steven Anthony Thomas v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Criminal. Affirms Steven Anthony Thomas’ conviction of Level 5 felony domestic battery. Finds the state’s evidence was sufficient to rebut Thomas’ self-defense claim.
C.H. v. State of Indiana (mem. dec.)
Juvenile. Reverses C.H.’s commitment to the Indiana Department of Correction after he was adjudicated as a delinquent child for admitting to committing what would be, if committed by an adult, Level 6 felony theft of a firearm, Class A misdemeanor carrying a handgun without a license, Class C misdemeanor operating without a license and Class C infraction speeding. Finds the Gibson Circuit Court abused its discretion by sending C.H. to the DOC because that placement was not appropriate under the circumstances. Remands for the trial court to order a suspended DOC commitment and probation.
