Well the last idiot Ct. of Appls decision is State of Indiana vs. Karl Jackson - N.E.2d -. Judge Robb (a screaming liberal, wife of a Purdue Professor) decided to ignore 10 years of previous precedent and a plain reading of the Indiana Code to decide that the Bureau of Motor Vehicles must jump through impossible legal hoops to "notify" scum bag repeat drunk drivers that no longer hold licenses that they are Habitual Traffic Violators. Guess What Jack Turd.. thats one of many!
Wow. Time to renew the Thorzine.

As to your citation of this Jackson case, you failed to mention (and probably comprehend) that the Court of Appeals did not "free" Jackson. The lower court had already determined that the statute was not satisfied, the Jackson lacked actual knowledge of the suspension. It was the State that appealed the trial court. You (and the State) may not like the law, but that is what the law requires. You could lobby the legislature to put an affirmative duty on drivers to always know their license status before driving a car, and they may just go for the idea. But, that's not the law. So, the trial court said the charge of driving while under habitual traffic violator status was not proven under the statute that created the offense.

C'mon. You said that there were "so many decisions" that "let crooks out." This case let nobody out. He was never put in because, under that pesky thing called "a law" he wasn't in violation. You're not calling for a change to allow prosecutors and police to just say "that's illegal," and throw people in jail, without first going through the legislative process to write a law, and then require that the specifics of the law be met, are you?

I have witnessed a few domestic violence and child endangerment cases in Hughes courtroom. He could care less that a child's father got his drivers license when he wasnt the custodial parent and had no right. Than he denied to allow medical testimony that showed this child was fetal alcohol and has seizures.

This teenage boy did NOT want his license as he was concerned about his seizures as were several medical professionals. Apparently Judge Hughes now thinks he's a medical specialist, social worker, etc?

How in God's name does this person stay in office with RIDICULOUS rulings that are dangerous to children and adults alike?

Yeah I want the street full of kids with seizures driving. Judge Hughes said the mother made up the diagnosis for convenience. Yeah right she gives this kid all her time, effort, medications and dollars just so she can make up that kind of diagnosis.

Oh I'm sorry the neurologist made it up too. All because this boys father wanted him to have his license so he could sell him his piece of junk car and not have to pick him up or drop him off on visitations or work nights??? What is wrong with this Judge.

My goodness people can we please get a judge elected that cares about the Hamilton county residents? Judge Hughes is jaded and makes up assumptions without evidence? Isnt our legal system based on evidence? NOT in Judge Hughes court its not.

Its whatever he "thinks" and whatever he wants?????

I am DISGUSTED as a tax payer that I am paying this persons salary.

Is he a bitter divorced man that hates women? children? What is his deal?
