(The Indiana Lawyer) – A Jefferson County man, convicted of beating up someone who testified against his daughter’s boyfriend, did not confine the victim during the assault, the Indiana Supreme Court has ruled.
Gary Allen Gibson was convicted of one count of aggravated battery, a Class B felony, and one count of criminal confinement by removal, a Class D felony. He was sentenced to 16 years for battery and 2 ½ years on the confinement charge, with both sentences served concurrently.
On appeal, Gibson argued, the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction for criminal confinement.
