Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 opinion(s) today (and 6 NFP memorandum decision(s))

For publication opinions today (1):

In Andy A. Shinnock v. State of Indiana, a 6-page opinion, Sr. Judge Sharpnack writes:

Andy A. Shinnock appeals his conviction of bestiality, a Level 6 felony. We reverse and remand.

Shinnock’s sole issue on appeal is whether the trial court erred by admitting his confession because the State’s evidence did not establish the corpus delicti of the crime. * * *

For the reasons stated, we conclude the trial court erred in admitting Shinnock’s confessions at trial because the corpus delicti of the crime charged was not established.
