Jury vote is upheld

Indiana's Court of Appeals has affirmed Casey L. Hill's conviction of felony intimidation.
Hill appealed on the grounds the trial court admitted evidence of "bad acts" committed after he was arrested.
The Appeals Court noted Hill's defense placed his intent at issue during opening statements at the trial and during his later testimony. Because Hill's intent was placed at issue, "evidence of later actions/ statements were admissible to establish his intent on the night in question," wrote the court.
When Hill threatened to kill his girlfriend and mother of his two children, he said he "was just blowing off steam." His subsequent actions said otherwise, noted the decision, including that he told others he was going to kill her; got on Face-book about trading his tattoo skills for a gun; and later walked 17 miles from Commiskey to her home to confron/ kill her.
A jury convicted Hill in May 2017. He was sentenced to 18 months in the county jail with 160 days credit in July.
