The Indiana Court of Appeals has upheld a 90-year sentence handed down by Judge Fredrick A. Shurger in December, 2011, to a Decatur man Andrew E. Stetler, 33, who was convicted on two counts of child molestation and of being a habitual offender.
Stetler appealed his sentence, questioning if sufficient evidence was presented to uphold one of his child molestation convictions and whether his 90-year sentence is inappropriate considering the nature of the offenses and his character.
Dr. Tony Nigliazzo, who recently joined Adams Memorial Hospital as a general surgeon, is seen in accompanying photo talking with his first patient, Kip Summerset, a rural Adams County resident.
Since the retirement of Dr. H.S. Lee, the hospital had had just one general surgeon, Dr. Richard Spady.
Prior to attending medical school, Nigliazzo was a firefighter-paramedic with the Edmond Fire Department, a suburb of Oklahoma City, from January of 1993 to June of 1999.
East Allen Schools is going to court to challenge a state law that has blocked it from selling two vacant schools.
The lawsuit filed this week in Allen Superior Court asks for a judge to clarify a law that legislators approved last year requiring public school districts to make vacant buildings available to charter schools for four years.
East Allen officials say no charter schools have expressed interest in two former elementary school buildings near Fort Wayne that other groups have tried to buy.
