Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court decides one today
In Glenn Carpenter v. State of Indiana, a 6-page opinion, Chief Justice Shepard writes:
Appellant Glenn Carpenter was discovered asleep in the waiting room of a dental office, apparently drunk or overdosed. This led to a forty-year sentence for possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and being an habitual offender. We conclude that twenty years was an adequate response to the situation.
