Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court grants one transfer this week

The transfer list will follow later today, but here is the one case granted transfer by the Supreme Court this week, Steven Hollin v. State of Indiana.

This is a March 29, 2007 not-for-publication Court of Appeals opinion. Because it is NFP, the ILB did not summarize it at the time.

In the 9-page opinion, Judge Riley writes:

Hollin raises two issues on appeal, which we restate as follows: (1) Whether it was fundamental error for the trial court to admit evidence of Hollin’s criminal history; and (2) Whether the trial court properly sentenced Hollin. * * *

Based on the foregoing, we find the trial court did not fundamentally error by admitting Hollin’s criminal history into evidence and that the forty year sentence imposed by the trial court is appropriate.
