IN - TaraNova Glick, 3, beaten to death, Elkhart, 13 July 2004
Chad Strong's father won't be at the rest of his son's trial.
That's because if Edgar Strong shows up in court this morning expecting to hear the beginning of testimony in his son's murder, battery and neglect case, the elder Strong will go to the county jail to serve a 90-day sentence for contempt of court.
Monday morning, as attorneys worked to choose jurors to hear about the death of 3 1/2-year-old TaraNova Glick, who died of abdominal injuries in July 2004, Edgar Strong sat in the back of the courtroom, behind prospective jurors, discussing the case within their hearing range, according to court staff members.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

The judge should give him another 90 days for being an ahole.

I agree Jeana. Maybe there should be a long sentence for prospective jury tampering.

CHAD E. STRONG, Appellant (Defendant below),
STATE OF INDIANA, Appellee (Plaintiff below).
July 24, 2007
The trial court found the sentencing factors warranted the imposition of maximum, con-secutive sentences for murder and class A felony neglect. We likewise conclude that for his re-vised conviction of class D felony neglect, the appropriate sentence is the maximum authorized sentence, three years, to be served consecutively with the sentence for murder. See Pierce, 761 N.E.2d at 830 n.5; Cutter v. State, 725 N.E.2d 401, 410 n.4 (Ind. 2000). As to the issues other than double jeopardy, we summarily affirm the decision of the Court of Appeals. Ind. Appellate Rule 58(A).
The defendant's conviction and sentence for murder is affirmed. But we remand to the trial court to reduce the conviction for neglect of a dependant from a class A felony to a class D felony, for which the sentence shall be a term of three years, to be served consecutively to the sentence for murder.
