Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court issues order re compliance with Criminal Rule 15.2

The Supreme Court yesterday posted an order, filed June 28th, re compliance with Criminal Rule 15.2, with respect to the completion of an electronic abstract of judgment:

Recognizing that practical difficulties have arisen making it challenging for courts to comply by July 1, 2012 with the electronic Abstract of Judgment requirement for those defendants with felony convictions that are not being committed to the Indiana Department of Correction, the Court by this order directs trial courts to make all best efforts to comply as soon as practicable for those defendants, but no later than December 31, 2012. This Order does not impact the statutory language requiring courts with felony commitments to the Indiana Department of Correction to complete the electronic Abstract of Judgment beginning July 1, 2012.

This Court wishes to express its appreciation to the trial courts that have complied by the original July 1, 2012 effective date.
