Looks like the Judge reclused himself from the case, I am wondering how much more John and his attorney's can challenge. I don't know about anyone else but I am getting really tired of all the extensions and BS that John and his attorney's are pulling. Let's face it he John is getting his money for all the defense BS somewhere ,question is when will it run out and he will be brought to justice once and for all.

Does anyone think that John is streching this out way to long. All I know it's been way to long to be walking around a free man acting like nothing was done wrong.

I have written under another topic, but he's what you can find presently:

You can follow the proceedings here, but you don't get much other than the box score:

State of Indiana v John Larkin, Felony Manslaughter

The court proceedings are not published until months (sometimes years) later and not without the judge's sigh off (which may never come - unless someone asks). If you think there is secrecy in the police department, try the courts! You have to be a member of the bar to get a code for the database. You can request from the Clerk, but you'll have to pay and if the Clerk objects, you have to go see a judge to get them released to you (and you have to have a good reason - that's how the TV shows get them.)

As far as I can tell, the Hon. Mary Harper has been appointed, Circuit Court Judge of Porter County. Judge Harper gave an interview here Court Times report on marriage of Judges Harper and Chidester

So, Larkin has been able to get all Laporte County judges recused and move the venue - as planned. This takes the case away from our community and deprives the Laporte County citizenry of adjudicating one of its citizens accused of a felony. You cannot believe how rare this is in Indiana - it's like < 0.1% likely, though perhaps more prevalent in "death" cases, but almost exclusively for murder. Never, and I mean never, for manslaughter.

For those who thought that voting Republicans into county offices (like judges and prosecutor) would change the system, you are horribly wrong. The system prevails! These guys have no guts at all. Let's see if this wisdom proves better applied on the council. This case is obvious radioactive. (I've been getting some funny looks, too, btw.)

"Following the money" is tough - but think about it - 2nd set of lawyers for the felony and the appeals, a set for the custody battle, a set as plaintiff, another for the feds and another for the insurance case - it' adding up. I have to believe that her own insurance money, the house, the kids' educations, anything they had before - it's all gone, so he can walk around free for the last four years. As a neighbor put it to me, "I hope he enjoyed it."

Believe me I have been following this on the court docket for a long time,I just hope the new Judge Hon. Harper will accept the case and be a firm stern Judge and finally get this going to trial as soon as she can. But like I have stated before I hope it is done right and he pays for what he has put Stacey's family through,the neighborhood through and his children will finally know the truth and he is a BSer. I think he has been free way to long.

Well it looks like the Judge in Porter County did not take the case,now on to Judge from Pulaski County. I sure do hope this Judge will accept the case and finally start the proceedings for Justice for Stacey and her family. This POS has been walking around free for way to long and it's about time he pays for what he did.

Is this Indiana's Wheel of Fortune they spin a wheel of Judges to see who will take the case, why are they all running away with their tails between their legs? What does Larking and or his attorneys have on the Judges in LaPorte and Porter County?

For the people that are following this case,let be known to you there may be a chance this POS SOB may walk free on a technical issue. If this happens I think our voices should be heard,it's just saying if you MURDER someoneyou can possibly get away with it.

This guy has to be politically connected some how. He did run for town council in 2011, as an independent and lost by only a few votes. His full name is John Brennan Larkin. There are 15 businesses associated with that name and address on Lothair Way.



There are 15 companies that have an address matching 2913 Lothair Way Long Beach, IN 46360.

The companies are Pure Water Insurance Services LLC, Callahan Insurance Services LLC, Sanitation Insurance Services LLC, Asset Service Systems Limited Liability Partnership, Plumbing News Insurance Services LLC, Callahan Insurance Services Inc, Larkin Family LLC, Klj Real Estate Inc, 336 Woods Edge Drive LLC, Callahan Risk Services, Condominium Insurance Services, Fairfield Insurance Services, Hvac Insurance Services, Plumbing Insurance Services, and Pure Water Insurance Services.

He has a profile as a Vice President of Kaercher Campbell & Associates, in Chicago. An commercial insurance brokerage firm. Education - 1983 - 1988 BS in Political Science/Criminal Justice - Loyola University of Chicago

We he has a knowledge of the Criminal Justice system and he seems to be using it.

Well I know he has had many failed businesses,it just amazes me how much B.S. he has put Stacey's family through all these year's. I just hope the Judge makes the right decision. I hope people let their voices be heard if he walks for any reason.

Seems like they reschedule at least 9 out of 10 court dates. It's ridiculous!

I truly expected to see the story about the Larkin civil rights violations produce a whole lot more angry responses about this being the potential second violation of civil rights locally, in a very short period of time. When Taylor was released, one of the big questions I had was if this was a regular occurrence, or a one time mistake. Hearing now about a potential second happening of people listening into private conversations between attorney and client really scares me that we have a pattern going on now, and that this has happened more than twice. I feel that people should really be outraged about this. We have one allegedly confessed killer free already, and now another instance where the case could possibly be effected. This is incredibly serious here. The implications for us all are scary. I made the comparison the other day, but will make it again, people should be WAY more upset about this, than about an idiotic article about basketball in LaCrosse. There should be outrage and calls for investigations. More than anything we the public are due some answers to know that the legal justice system in LaPorte County is sound, and that our very basic civil rights, as promised by the constitution are being protected, and not regularly violated.


I too am alarmed by this. It goes beyond incompetence and the citizens should really be outraged into action.

I called Mike Bohacek to inquiry as to the information available out of the clerk's office and the inner workings of the clerk's office. Though Mike was helpful, he also said, "I can't get sucked into this." I took this to mean that the judiciary in Laporte County was the third rail of county government.

I called the DOJ and it is true that all court operations are guide by state law, but just try to read them. It is super complicated and I honestly was dizzy just trying to find out how files move after a court decision. Try it - and let me know if you can actually follow the chain of custody - it is beyond mind boggling. In any case, the County Board wants nothing to do with the judiciary, so you have to go to Indianapolis for any change - and it ain't easy. Just look at what Tom Dermody tried (and failed) to do with the property tax issue and the DLGF - no wonder he retired.

The appeals court doc is public and anyone can read it. I was looking to see if there were specific instructions regarding the court doc of the 12 minutes. There wasn't any concerning the file itself. May need help here as I am a complete amateur.

Larkin Appeal decision

The meat of the decision is:

1. The county prosecutors office did not have to appoint a special prosecutor because Z had been voted out, there was no way Neary and his crew would continue and Espar was free and clear of entanglements (or was he? - more later). The point to bar Z was moot.

So why then did Espar appoint a special prosecutor, Stanley Levco, from downstate, to try the case when he didn't have to? The family did agreed to this. It should be noted that Levco is the SP in a court case in Porter County - the felony strangulation and domestic battery charged against Lake County Councilman Jamal Washington. This also involves a martial case and a change of venue - described as a nightmare for everybody. (I will look around for Levco stuff later, but suffice to say he is having a pretty good pay day in NWI and will for the foreseeable future!)

see Judge does not revoke Washington's bond - NWI Times

2. The 12 minutes had no information that was unknown to all parties in the case.

Case dismissed.

I am trying to figure out why the new judge, Patrick Blankenship, would even care about Stanley Levco's admission that he had read the transcript of the 12 minutes. Believe it or not, this case material was like the first file atop the three boxes handed to the new special prosecutor. He apparently didn't read the appeals court decision (disturbing, knowing his pay rate). I am not sure how this file was marked, but he should have been on the look out for it. I was wondering if the clerk or court had any responsibility here, but idk - hard to say. if the Judge didn't care to put specific instructions in the decision (burn this or seal this or whatever), why should the clerk? But there has been some problems in general with clerk's operations (expressed by Alevizos in a prior hearing), but of course that office is up for grabs right now, so anything prior to the newly elected will be gently brushed under the rug. Again, problems? See you in Indianapolis.

I get that Levco confessed reading the file, but just read the decision - there is nothing in the 12 minutes. If Blankenship didn't read the appeals court ruling, talk about SOL - wow. But perhaps he will respect the appeals court decision and move on. I also think Espar might have mentioned the file to Levco - that this file existed and to look out for it, unless he thought it didn't matter. Still, I would think he would be a professional - tribal knowledge - and the fact that this was a high profile case and fraught with problems and one of very few felony cases of its kind. Goes to the question of what goes on in the judiciary offices of the county and who these guys are who get voted in. Unreal to me. Think of nurses who "hand off" patients after every shift. Guess they don't do that for felony cases here - too busy - doing...what exactly? Totally unprofessional at best. Lazy at worst. Or maybe Espar has connections to Larkin - don't know....yet.

I care about civil rights. However, I care about the civil right to life more than I care about the right to defense lawyers that use every tactic under the sun to delay, cry foul, and generally muddy the waters.

People are dead. Guns were used to killed them.

You posses a gun, point it at an unarmed person and shoot them dead, you better be ready to accept the consequences and not bitch about how you're being so mistreated.

The guy seems completely nuts. Talk to him for 5 minutes (if you can get away from his ranting in less than an hour, good for you) and it's clear that he' living on another planet. What kind of person kills their wife "accidentally" and then runs around telling everyone they can find the most vile and hateful things about her and her family? If not nuts, then just pure evil.
