Higdon sentencing postponed; Court documents cite need for medical records
By J.G. Wallace
He once proclaimed he would never serve a day in jail, and at least on a temporary basis Dewayne Calvin Higdon is still correct.
Instead of donning an orange jumpsuit and settling into a cell block at the Wells County Jail, the convicted drug dealer will remain free until at least late September.
Higdon was scheduled to be sentenced in his conviction on two counts of felony marijuana dealing at 1 p.m. on Friday, but early on Friday morning Judge David Hanselman, Sr., acting as Special Judge in Wells Superior Court granted a defense motion for a continuance until Sept. 28, 2007.
The motion, which was filed on Aug. 2, 2007 by Higdon’s Public Defender Gregory Kauffman of South Bend listed several reasons for seeking a delay in the proceeding.

here is the rest of the first story

The motion also said Kauffman was waiting for medical documentation from Lutheran Hospital detailing Higdon’s congestive heart failure.
During a December federal civil rights trial in U.S. District Court in Fort Wayne Higdon’s testimony detailed many of his medical problems but shortly after that case concluded Higdon successfully passed a Department of Transportation physical and regained his Commercial Drivers License.
Higdon, 55, of Pennville was convicted of two counts of dealing in marijuana, both Class C Felonies under Indiana law, in June following a three-day trial in Wells County Superior Court.

Higdon was convicted by a 12-member jury of two transactions in July 2002 involving controlled buys by a confidential informant working for the Bluffton Police Department.


Higdon has said he planned to appeal the convictions and in a recent interview he claimed he would be adding additional legal counsel and planned to appeal his conviction and seek a new trial elsewhere.
“This is only the first round,” Higdon said. Prior to the verdict being announced Higdon predicted that he would never serve a day in jail, a claim he now denies ever having made.
Higdon also faces a pending February 2008 trial for felony intimidation of witness Terry Shepherd. Additionally the events following his arrest on the intimidation warrant led to a failed federal lawsuit by Higdon against several Bluffton and Wells County police officers.
In December 2006 after a five-day trial a federal jury in Fort Wayne found against Higdon in claims that his residence had been illegally searched and those officers had stolen $1,000 from Higdon.
