Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 9 NFP memorandum decision(s))

For publication opinions today (1):

In Mickel Thacker v. State of Indiana , a 7-page opinion, Judge May writes:

Mickel Thacker challenges the sufficiency of evidence supporting his conviction of Level 6 felony auto theft and Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. We affirm. * * *

Officer Helton told Thacker and his acquaintance to stop. (Id. at 40.) Officer Helton demonstrated in court how loud he yelled “Stop police [sic],” (id. at 49), at the two men exiting the stolen vehicle. This was sufficient evidence from which the factfinder could conclude Thacker knowingly fled from Officer Helton after Officer Helton ordered Thacker to stop. See Fowler v. State, 878 N.E.2d 889, 895 (Ind. Ct. App. 2008) (resisting law enforcement conviction upheld when visible and audible orders to not flee were ignored by defendant).

As the evidence was sufficient to prove Thacker knowingly or intentionally exerted unauthorized control over a stolen vehicle and resisted law enforcement, we affirm.
