Criminal Justice News

On Friday, October 24, the IndyBar Criminal Justice Section took a trip to the track. Defense attorneys, prosecutors and judicial officers met at Indiana Grand Track and Casino in Shelbyville, IN, to try their luck on the ponies. With free food, drinks and casino cash, members were able to have a great time without breaking the bank. 

Some of our members were even lucky enough to win money at the Casino. The biggest win of the night was had by Magistrate David Hooper whose horse "I'll Back You Up" had his first win in Shelbyville.

The group got to go the winner's circle and and have their picture taken with the Magistrate's winning horse.

The Criminal Justice Section would like to give a big thanks to Emerge Monitoring, Marc Lopez Law and AAA Bail Bonds for making this fun night possible.
