Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 6 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In Thomas Temple v. State of Indiana , a 6-page opinion, the issue is the definition of "induce." In affirming the trial court, Judge Bradford writes:

In charging Temple, the State specifically alleged that he “induced” A.H. to commit the delinquent act of leaving her home. App. p. 4. Temple‟s challenge is to the meaning of “induce,” which he argues requires that A.H. have completed the act he allegedly “induced,” namely leaving her home. The State argues in response that “induce” is more akin to “encourage,” an act also listed under section 35-46-1-8(a), and is satisfied when the defendant acts to persuade the minor to commit delinquent conduct, regardless of whether the minor ever actually completes the conduct alleged.
