The re-sentencing hearing for Clifford Baker has been reset for August. The 20-year old Loogootee man, who was sentenced to life in prison for first degree murder in Fayette County in 2011, will now be resentenced on August 29th. The hearing was originally set for July 7th, but was rescheduled because a defense mitigation witness would not be available the entire month of July.
Baker was found guilty nearly five years ago for first degree murder in the deaths of Michael Mahon and Debra Tish. Baker was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. However, it was found unconstitutional to have someone who, at the time, was under the age of 18 to not have the possibility of parole.
