Ind. Decisions - Transfer list for week ending March 28, 2008 [Updated]

Here is the Indiana Supreme Court's transfer list for the week ending March 28, 2008.

(Note that there are 6 pages to the list this week.)

There were 7 transfers granted this week. Six were announced in this ILB entry dated March 24. Here are descriptions of those cases:

In the Matter of J.C.C. - whether the juvenile court erred when it ordered J.C.C. placed on the sex offender registry.

Richard Wallace v. State - "Appellant-defendant Richard P. Wallace appeals his conviction for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender, a class D felony. Specifically, Wallace argues that the requirement for him to register is an ex post facto law and the State forfeited its right to prosecute him in light of a previous plea agreement that had been negotiated."

Todd Jensen v. State - In a 10-page, 2-1 opinion, the Court rules that "the amendments to Indiana’s Sex Offender Registry as applied to Jensen violate the ex post facto clauses of the federal and state constitutions."

Marla K. Young v. Timothy S. Young - calculation of child support

Anthony Hopkins v. State - "Because the record shows that the trial court did not advise Hopkins of all of his Boykin rights, his plea was thus unknowing and involuntary and must be vacated."

State v. Michael Cozart - "The State argues that the trial court was not required to advise Cozart regarding the effect his prior felony convictions would have on its authority to suspend any portion of the minimum sentence he faced following a guilty plea to a class A felony. Finding that Cozart did not plead guilty knowingly and voluntarily, we affirm the judgment of the post-conviction court."

The seventh transfer grant is Debra A. Barnett v. Camille Clark, Trustee of Pleasant Township, summarized in this ILB entry from Thursday, March 27th.
