Attempted Murder Conviction of Lake Station Man Upheld

Share this post

The Indiana Court of Appeals has affirmed police testimony regarding a Lake Station man's confession during his trial in 2012 in a 3-0 decision. 38 year old Jason King had appealed his attempted murder conviction, stating questioning by officers should not have continued when he asked if he needed an attorney, which the appeals court determined was not actually exercising the right to demand an attorney be present. The court also determined the 45 year prison sentence King received for shooting Woodrow McGuire, of Gary, in the face in February of 2011, was justified, in light of his significant criminal history, and the disturbing motive of the crime, in which King shot McGuire, a total stranger because, “he was black” and due to the fact McGuire had asked King to stop leaning against him while at a South Haven bar.
