ABSTRACT
The article examines the voting patterns of the Indiana Supreme Court in criminal decisions. According to the author, the record of the Supreme Court in criminal cases has been pro-prosecution. With five justices on the court, criminal defendants were hard-pressed to gain three votes required to succeed on appeal. The only one who tended to be in favor of the defendant was Justice Robert D. Rucker, while the prosecution was voted by Justice Frank Sullivan, Jr. and Justice Theodore R. Boehm.
