Fox59 News has learned next Wednesday at 3:30 p.m., former Carmel High School basketball player Brandon Hoge will accept a plea for his role in the bus incident in Hendricks County. Hoge's attorney, Jim Crum, had no comment when reached about the plea hearing in Judge Coleman's Superior Court 2.
Local attorney Jack Crawford said he predicted pleas all along.
"As to Mr. Hoge, I'm not surprised the case has been resolved. He has a good lawyer. My expectation is he will not face any jail time," said Crawford.
A year ago, Hoge who was then 18, faced two counts of battery and one count of criminal recklessness that carried a maximum sentence of two years in jail.
Robert Kitzinger still faces a battery charge for the bus incident in Hendricks County. He originally faced two counts of battery and one count of criminal recklessness that carried a max of 2.5 years in jail.
Scott Laskowski faced three misdemeanors for criminal recklessness. A max punishment for him would have been 1.5 years in jail. Laskowski pleaded guilty to one count and got one year probation.
Oscar Falodun did the same. He originally faced one count of battery and two counts criminal recklessness carrying a max of two years in jail.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
