Ind. Decisons - Supreme Court decides one today

In Victor Roar v. State of Indiana, a 2-page, 5-0, per curiam opinion, the Court agrees with the majority analysis in the 2-1 COA's April 21st split:

Rejecting its prior precedent in C.L. v. State, 2 N.E.3d 798 (Ind. Ct. App. 2014), the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court. * * *

We agree with Judge Najam’s analysis and the result reached by the Court of Appeals majority in the present appeal. We therefore grant transfer, adopt and incorporate by reference that portion of the Court of Appeals’ opinion addressing the sufficiency of the evidence in accordance with Indiana Appellate Rule 58(A)(1), and affirm the trial court. We summarily affirm that part of the Court of Appeals’ opinion addressing the admission of other evidence. See App. R. 58(A)(2).
