Without a plea agreement, Gravit pleaded guilty to Level 3 felony leaving the scene of an accident during or after committing operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing death and Level 4 felony operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing death, and he admitted to being a habitual offender. The Noble Circuit Court imposed the maximum sentences on the two felony convictions and the maximum additional term for the habitual offender enhancement and ordered the sentences to be served consecutively. Gravit appealed on grounds his convictions for the Level 3 and Level 4 felonies violated the prohibition against double jeopardy. He also requested a reduction in his sentence under Appellate Rule 7(B). The Court of Appeals affirmed. Gravit v. State, No. 20A-CR-1578 (Ind. Ct. App. Feb. 25, 2021). Gravit has petitioned the Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
