Defense lawyer submits motion to end Kegan Kline case



Miami County, Indiana – New representation is required for Kegan Kline.

A motion to leave the case was submitted by Andrew Achey, who had been Kline’s attorney as he awaited sentencing last week.

Achey will be replaced as the record attorney with the judge’s permission. Kline was informed of the transfer by Achey in a letter. His client resides in the Miami County Jail at the moment.

“It was my pleasure representing you in the above-mentioned matter, and truly wish you the best of luck moving forward,” Achey wrote to Kline. “If you have questions about this or any other matter related to your case, please contact me at my office. Thank you for allowing me and my office to help you with your case.”

It’s the most recent development in a case that seemed to be coming to a conclusion. A sentencing hearing was placed on May 18 after Kline entered a plea of guilty to 25 counts of child exploitation, possession of child pornography, identity theft, and obstruction of justice.

However, the court and the prosecution met with his lawyer to discuss the case, delaying the sentence by more than an hour. Following Kline’s admission that he hadn’t seen some of the evidence against him and was having second thoughts about entering a guilty plea, the action was taken.

The proof consisted of the transcripts of a conversation Kline had with Indiana State Police during which he talked about his use of the fictitious “anthony_shots” account to engage with children on social media and whether or not he had spoken to Libby German the night before she passed away.

In February 2017, the bodies of Libby and her friend Abby Williams were discovered in Delphi. Despite not having been charged or identified as a suspect, Kline has been connected to the Delphi killings as a result of that interview. In this case, Richard Allen is accused.

Achey admitted to Spahr last week that he was unaware that Kline hadn’t gone through the transcripts of his own police statements. For their part, the prosecution referred to Kline’s arguments as a stalling strategy.

Despite the state’s protests, Spahr granted the extension. The judge scheduled a status hearing for June 1 and continued the punishment until July 27.
