1st Quarter, 20182018 is off to a fast start. Election years are always differentand certainly more dramatic. We wish everyone the best asthey work through the challenges of finding time for politicsand work.We know that a number of prosecutors are retiringor running for a different office, so we expect a prettysignificant turnover this year. We have already begun ourpreparation for the 2018 Newly Elected Course.Thank you for all of the positive feedback regarding the2017 Winter Conference. We put a lot of work into thesebig conferences and your support makes our effortsworthwhile. We do look at your evaluations and try toaccommodate recommendations you provide.Despite being a short session, the legislative days arealready flying by. It is really hard to explain theups and downs of each day, but they are real.The challenge is to not let this roller coasterdrive you off the rails. It’s too early to knowhow it will all turn out, but we will do our bestto represent your interests. You do have a verydedicated and hardworking team advocating onyour behalf. I sincerely appreciate the hard workof the prosecutors serving on the legislativecommittee. They are force multipliers and oursuccess often depends on them.Lastly, I want to thank everyone who eitherattended or supported our advanced juryselection course. It may have been the mostchallenging course we have offered. The studentswho were able to attend overwhelminglypraised the course. Some reported it was themost helpful training they have ever received.Daviess County Prosecutor Dan Murrie and trial consultant Amy Pardieck share The faculty was outstanding and we will askeffective jury techniques with students during the Voir Dire course.See Powell, Page 2Check Your IPAC Prosecutor Page for Accuracy, Current ContentDid you know every prosecutor is listed on theIPAC web site Find Your Prosecutor page?

Italso links to a page for each prosecutor that has spacefor a photograph and biography.The public uses IPAC’s Find Your Prosecutor pages tofind out about their local prosecutor. In the 4th quarterof 2017, the main Find Your Prosecutor page (http://www.in.gov/ipac/2330.htm) was the third most viewedpage on the IPAC site with nearly 3,000 views! Whileone might expect prosecutors from large counties tohave a large number of views, prosecutors from smallcounties also have what might be considered a largeamount of page “traffic.” Sixty prosecutor’s pages areamong the top 100 pages viewed on the IPAC site.With that in mind, please check out the content ofyour Find Your Prosecutor Page, if you find a missing oroutdated photo, incomplete information or a missinglink to your office web site, please e-mail ConnieSmith - cosmith1@ipac.in.gov – to update your pageinformation.

Members of the General Assembly convenedon Wednesday, January 3, and will have ten weeks to finishbusiness by March 14. The focus of caucus leadership thisyear is on Sunday alcohol sales, fighting the opioid epidemic,improving workforce development, and addressing schoolfunding.IPAC Legislative PrioritiesIPAC has a number of irons in the fire this session as well.Our priority bills this year include Senate Bill 108, whichmakes possessing or dealing a synthetic drug an offense ofthe same level as the drug it mirrors. The current penaltiesfor synthetic drugs are infractions and misdemeanors,which we believe are inappropriate in light of the havocdesigner drugs wreak in communities throughout Indiana.We are also focusing efforts on the passage of House Bill1359, which creates a new crime of Drug Dealing Resultingin Death, to be utilized in cases where a victim hasoverdosed. The bill was recently named as one of GovernorHolcomb’s top legislative priorities as well.Finally, Senate Bill 64 is also high on our radar. SB 64 is alegislative fix to the Stafford case, recently decided by theCourt of Appeals in October. As many of you are aware,plea bargaining in Indiana would effectively end if Staffordwere to stand. SB 64 passed out of the Senate Correctionsand Criminal Law Committee last week, and will be heardon second reading in the full Senate this coming week.We are closely following many other important bills,including those dealing with cannabidiol legalization, civilforfeiture, sexual assault, drug dealing penalties, humantrafficking, and impaired driving. Don’t hesitate to contactme should you have any questions concerning these orother measures.Testifying at the StatehouseAs in previous sessions, we are prepared to testify incommittee as bills we both support and oppose receivehearings. If you are interested in testifying on a bill, pleaselet me know.Weekly Statehouse ReportI distribute a Statehouse report to members of the IPACBoard and the Legislative Committee every week.

1st Quarter, 2018The Indiana ProsecutorPage 9Border Meetings Support Interstate Cooperation, UnderstandingFor years, Indiana Child Support professionals have beenworking at communicating with their peers in other statesthrough “border meetings”, wherein multiple states discussfederal guideline changes, case law updates, differences indoing business, policies, technology and other items. Thestates also share lists of personnel and other what-youshould-know-to-do-business-with-us information.In late October, 174 IV-D workers and leaders from fivestates – Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin and Illinois –as well as the Ho-Chunk Indian nation, met in Middlebury,Indiana for two days. Organized by Indiana’s Child SupportCommittee, the meeting may have been the most ambitiousmulti-state child support sharing event yet.Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker offered a welcome.Representatives of each state, as well as the Ho Chunknation, provided overviews of their programs. A sessionallowing attendees to sort through case scenarioshighlighted how states and tribes deal with establishmentand modification of support orders and third party custodyissues.Evaluations were positive. “I enjoyed the intergovernmentalscenarios breakout and discussion,” said one participant.“It was nice to talk with the other states to see how theirjurisdictions work a case.” Another participant suggestedthe 5-state training should be held more often: “I feelthere are always some topics that come up that need tobe addressed or shared so that we may all learn what eachstate is expecting for intergovernmental cases. So I thankyou and applaud the committee that put this together.”IPAC’s IV-D policy analyst Karla Mantia and WarrenCounty, Ohio’s Child Support Enforcement Director BethAnne Schorr are likely the two individuals with the mostexperience in multi-state border projects.Schorr said border meetings are designed to accomplishthree goals:Ashley Clark of Jasper County examines a display map that showsthe five states participating in the border meeting hosted by Indianain Elkhart County.Ohio’sBeth AnneSchorr (atleft) sbetweenmultiplestates.Elkhart County Prosecutor Vicki Becker welcomed 174child support workers from five states and one Indiannation to Middlebury.

Improve and understand the role of each state’s teamplayers from across state lines.The result is, said Schorr, “we build relationships and worktogether by picking up the phone and problem solvingtogether; we don’t just push papers.”Border meetings have been conducted on a consistent basisfor the last seven years and occasionally for a few yearsbefore that. Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky meet annually andadditional meetings that include other states are held lessoften.“We got the idea from other states,” said IPAC’s KarlaMantia. “Not all regions have border meetings but somedo.” Recently, both Schorr and Mantia discussed bordermeetings with federal region 4 that includes the states ofFlorida, Georgia and Alabama. “The feds think that bordermeetings are a great idea,” she said.“Some parents use state borders to avoid enforcement, orthey live in one state and work in another state,” explainedMantia. “Through communication and cooperation wecan help each other locate parents and assets to ensuresupport is paid.”
