Faith v. StateAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court vacated the decision of the court of appeals revising Defendant's sentence for three counts of Class A felony child molesting and revised the sentences to the original terms set by the trial court, holding that the sentence imposed by the court of appeals was wholly inadequate under the circumstances.
The trial court sentenced Defendant to consecutive terms of thirty years on each count of his conviction for child molesting for an executed sentence of ninety years, with twenty years suspended. The court of appeals revised Defendant's sentence to concurrent thirty-year terms, with no time suspended, on all three counts. The Supreme Court granted vacated the court of appeals' decision and revised Defendant's sentences to the original consecutive thirty-year temps, with thirty years suspended, for an executed sentence of sixty years, holding that a thirty-year aggregate sentence was inadequate under the circumstances.
