About this Event
The Marion Superior Court entered true findings of dangerous possession of a firearm and possession of a machine gun against A.W., a minor. The Court of Appeals affirmed in part, holding that there was sufficient evidence to support a finding that A.W. knew that an attachment to the gun converted it to a machine gun. However, the Court of Appeals reversed in part, finding that the convictions for dangerous possession and possession of a machine gun violated the Double Jeopardy clause in Article 1, § 14 of the Indiana Constitution. A.W. v. State, 192 N.E.3d 227 (Ind. Ct. App. July 29, 2022). The Indiana Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer and accepted jurisdiction over the case.
