Ind. Courts - More on: “I don’t know of any other murder cases going to a third trial”

Updating this ILB post from earlier today, a reader points out another example:

Hi Marcia-

The State tried Steven Thompson three times for murder in Michigan city in the late 90’s, IIRC [= if I recall correctly]. Hung, hung, convicted. The lead prosecutor on the case was a gentleman named Steve Hale who retired from the prosecutor’s office after that final trial. Defense counsel was Hilbert Bradley of Gary, and Donald Pagos of Michigan City. I was a young DP back then and sat second chair. Memories.

Christopher Fronk,
DPA, LaPorte County
