How is it possible to sentence someone with a consecutive sentence with a prior when the 2 cases are in different counties
1 attorney answer
That's because the COUNTY in which a crime was committed is irrelevant in terms of sentencing. A criminal case is brought by "The State of Indiana," so if you have a prior case in Indiana -- regardless of what county you were tried in -- any subsequent sentence can be ordered to run consecutively.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
