One Sentence Case Law Review – 5
At The Law Office of Jacob Rigney, we make complicated things simple. Here’s is an all Indiana Supreme Court edition of the once sentence case law review!
Young v. State, Lee v. State (12 pages)
If the State only charges you with shooting someone to death, the trier of fact can’t convict you of beating them.
Hines v. State (14 pages)
If you charge a person and put them in a headlock, you can only be convicted of confinement or battery, but not both; and if the person is a corrections officer, you can get 8 years in prison for it.
In re Philpot (3 pages)
An attorney who committed mail fraud and theft was suspended from the practice of law for 4 years without automatic reinstatement.
