Ramirez was charged with Level 4 felony child molesting. During discovery, the prosecutor’s office informed defense counsel that, pursuant to local rule, it would not provide counsel with a copy of the victim’s forensic interview; instead, the video could be viewed at the prosecutor’s office. The Allen Superior Court denied the defense’s motion to compel a copy of the video. It also denied the defense’s motion to continue, filed the morning of trial, after the prosecutor’s office disclosed new information it received from the victim the day before trial. The jury found Ramirez guilty, and he was sentenced to six years in prison. In a memorandum decision, the Court of Appeals affirmed. Ramirez v. State, No. 20A-CR-1982, 2021 WL 180581 (Ind. Ct. App. 2021), vacated. The Indiana Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer and assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
