9 a.m. 28S05-1707-CR-00499

The State charged Shelly Phipps with invasion of privacy, alleging she violated a protective order by communicating with a protected person.  After trial in the Greene Superior Court, a jury convicted her as charged.  A majority of the Court of Appeals reversed, concluding the State failed to present sufficient evidence to support the conviction.  Phipps v. State, 77 N.E.3d 180 (Ind. Ct. App. 2017), vacated. The Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
