Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 3 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In James K. Oberst v. State of Indiana, a 14-page opinion, Judge Vaidik writes:

James K. Oberst appeals the post-conviction court's denial of his petition for post-conviction relief. He contends that his trial counsel was ineffective on several grounds, including allowing him to give a statement that he had sexual intercourse with the victim to police in counsel's presence. Because Oberst gave this statement to police in counsel's presence before adversary criminal proceedings had been initiated, Oberst had no Sixth Amendment right to counsel and therefore no right to the effective assistance of counsel. Finding no other instances of ineffective assistance of counsel, we affirm the post-conviction court.
