About Samuel L. Cappas
Samuel L. Cappas has been a resident of Northwest Indiana all of his life.
After more than 25 years in public positions and private law, Sam continues to fight and win justice for the people of Lake County and Northwest Indiana.

Sam was appointed by the Lake County Prosecutor's office as a deputy prosecuting attorney in the Misdemeanor division. After just one year, Sam was assigned to the Felony division, where he spent the next three years as a felony trial attorney.

Sam was next assigned Lake County Trial Supervisor, responsible for reviewing cases, assigning cases, and overseeing courtroom trial attorneys.

CROWN POINT | Lake County Criminal Court Judge Samuel Cappas on Thursday sentenced a Hammond woman to a 10-year prison term without any suspension of that sentence after a jury found her guilty in February of two Class B felony counts of neglect of a dependent.

Stokes continued to protect her boyfriend during the child's medical treatment and even through her trial and sentencing, Cappas pointed out.
...
However, in sentencing Stokes, Cappas said her behavior wasn't what is expected of a mother.
...
Thank God there wasn't a 2-by-4 behind there," Cappas said.
"She covered up what happened. Her actions worked toward covering him (the boyfriend) up rather than her duties of seeking medical care," he said.
"If she has a motherly instinct, it's not up to par with what I would expect from the average person," Cappas said prior to sentencing.
