IN Supreme Court Takes Larry Russell Case
By Jon Swaner
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Indiana Supreme Court will review a Valley high-profile child abuse case.
The state’s top court agreed to review the case against Larry Russell of Terre Haute.
He and his wife Nikki pleaded guilty to neglect and criminal confinement charges.
The court of appeals overturned Larry Russell’s 10 year prison sentence.
The court felt his plea agreement did not follow state law.
The Supreme Court’s decision to take on the case means both the appellate and trial courts rulings are vacated.
