  • Prosecutors: Alibi wona t hold up

    Saturday Apr 1 | via Daily Reporter 

    Days after the murder suspect filed a notice with the court stating he'll have two friends testify he was with them on the night of a Greenfield woman's slaying, prosecutors asked the judge to strike the notice from the official court record. There isn't enough evidence for the alibi to hold up in court, they say; additionally, the alibi notice was filed 116 days after the deadline set by the court - too late to be considered, prosecutors argue.

Greenfield Law

How long does the state have to submit known evidence to the court and still be admissable at trial ?
I am currently in the process of fighting an O.W.I. and I didnt take a PBT nor field sobriety tests so they took my blood via warrant . this was 7 months ago . The state filed the discovery and my blood test results was not inculded nor was there any mention of them in any part of the discovery , so me and my atty. asked for them after 6 months of delay they finally provided .
It is not unusual for the State lab to take months to turn around test results and this does not make them inadmissible.
Im on probation for a dui. I stole something from sister in law and shes pressing charges
Ive been on probation since aug. 09 and will be off in oct. 2010. I recently stole a ring and necklace from my sister in law and pawned it and she is pressing charges. At the time i was on a few different kinds of medication(although not an excuse)and didnt really realise what i was doing. I spent 7 hrs. in Hancock county jail and really dont wanna go back to jail. Can you give my some advice on what i should do? Also what punishment can i expect? Is there anyway to avoid jail time?
Jail time is much more likely as a second offender when serving probation. Hire a lawyer. DO NOT POST ANYTHING...
Will I get a Dui or will I be charged with anything?
I was driving home late after having a few drink at a friends house. I ended up rolling my car into a ditch. The police were called by a witness and I was given a field sobriety test and then later taken to the hospital for a blood test. After the blood test the officer let me go. I was not arrested. I understand that it takes about 6 weeks for the lab results to get back, but I'm still uncertain about what's going to happen next.

Can you fight against not blowing through a breathalyzer while walking intoxicated, no other tests were given?

Will I be charged for a DUI?
My friend had a family emergency and had to get home earlier than expected and we had a few drinks at the bar. When we got to his house the police were already there and my friend went inside with them. After the situation concluded the police came out and questioned me. They asked if I was drinking I said yes and they did a breathalyzer test on me. I blew over but they did not arrest me, ask for my license, or even my name. They said this was a warning and said you should spend the night here. With all that being said, is there a chance of me being charged?
No one can say for certain if you will be charged. That is up to the prosecutor. However, given the circumstances that...
What are the reqmnts re: info collected from hard drive, network activity, etc for that info to be used (or not) in a legal case
Relative convicted in criminal trial and is looking for any Indiana and Federal Rules of Evidence concerning the collection and use of "MetaData" in a forensic investigation for use/compliance for use in a court case to be considered valid evidence. Relative states: "[police] supposedly did the forensic investigation on the hard drive(s) from the laptops taken from the house, nothing found on the drives according to [public defender] as of day before trial but then claim by state police of "window washer" program traces (previously not disclosed to defense, violation of rules of evidence). They, the state police, also did not provide a "record of content" to the defense or the prosecution prior to trial that detailed what was and what wasn't actually on the drive(s). They also didn't provide a chain of custody that showed which drive the got the alleged "window washer" software, also a violation of the rules of evidence and also another point that [pub def] just let slip without challenge when he was questioning the [police] investigator and failed to collect on cross examination after disclosure during the prosecutors questioning (error of counsel/ineffective assistance)"
There isn't enough space to explain the complexities of the rules of evidence. If your relative is looking to appeal...
