On Monday, December 2, at a 20-minute hearing, an agreement was announced between Paul Henry Gingerich and Dan Hampton, the Kosciusko County Attorney, Mike Dempsey, Executive Director of the Indiana juvenile prison system, Paul Henry’s parents Paul and Nicole Gingerich, and defense attorney Monica Foster. This agreement obviates the need for a new waiver hearing.
As long as Paul Henry complies with the terms of the deal, this agreement takes adult prison off the table forever.
It also allows the juvenile system to keep Paul Henry in its custody and at the same time step down his restrictions. Paul Henry is doing very well in the juvenile system. He will continue with his counseling and finish high school at Pendleton in the general population, where he will be eligible to participate in the full range of services. When he completes his high school (probably next summer), Paul Henry will likely be transferred to a group home setting. Paul Henry will also start college.
This agreement potentially lowers Paul Henry’s period of incarceration from 25 years to 6, and the involvement of the state in his life from 30 years to 15.
