Ind Courts - Brief of Charlie White in appeal of his trial court criminal conviction

Here is the brief of Defendant/Appellant Charles P. White, filed Sept. 4, 2012 with the Court of Appeals. Here is the statement of the issues from p. 6:

Whether the State's election statutes, designed to protect free and equal elections, do not include the singular casting of one ballot, and the submission of one application, in its criminal statutory scheme, where the statute uses only the plural form of the words.

Whether the State and Federal constitutional prohibitions against ex post facto laws prohibit conviction where the statutes under which the defendant was charged, for an act that took place in 2005; namely applying for and obtaining a marriage license, were repealed in 1997.

The sentencing was Feb. 23, 2012. The Supreme Court interim suspension on April 25 gives more details of the offenses.
