Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 2 NFP)

For publication opinions today (0):

In William Minnick v. State of Indiana, a 12-page opinion, Judge Bradford concludes:

We conclude that the trial court properly imposed sentences for Minnick’s robbery and rape convictions. We further conclude that the trial court did not err in failing to order another competency evaluation for Minnick. Minnick’s conviction for Class A felony robbery, however, violates prohibitions against double jeopardy. We reverse in part and remand with instructions for the trial court to reduce Minnick’s robbery conviction to a Class B felony and impose a twenty-year sentence to run consecutively with his sixty-year sentence for murder and his fifty-year sentence for Class A felony rape, for a sum total sentence of 130 years executed.

The judgment of the trial court is affirmed in part and reversed and remanded in part with instructions.
