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

For publication opinions today (1):

In Nicholas Suding v. State of Indiana , a 14-page opinion, Judge May writes:

Nicholas Suding appeals his conviction of and sentence for Class A felony conspiracy to commit murder. * * *

Suding was not prejudiced by the State’s amendment of his charges past the omnibus date, and the prosecutor’s comments regarding “an allegation involving a kid” did not put Suding in grave peril. The comments made by Suding’s wife regarding an alleged incident of abuse did not warrant a mistrial because the court admonished the jury to disregard her statements. Finally, the evidence was sufficient to support Suding’s conviction, and the trial court did not abuse its discretion in sentencing him. Accordingly, we affirm.
