The Indiana Court of Appeals will hear arguments in Christopher Bryant v. State of Indiana Tuesday at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis.

Students in the government and law and Advanced Placement government classes will attend the oral argument and later join the judges for an informal question-and-answer session about Indiana’s judicial branch of government.

In the Lake County case, Christopher Bryant was convicted of two Class A felony counts of dealing in a narcotic drug, Class A misdemeanor resisting law enforcement and Class A misdemeanor marijuana possession. He also admitted to being a habitual substance offender and received an aggregate prison sentence of 45 years.

On appeal, Bryant claims that he was denied effective assistance of trial counsel because his lawyer failed to file a motion to suppress evidence obtained through an allegedly illegal search and seizure. He also claims the trial court abused its discretion in denying his mistrial motion and that the court abused its discretion in sentencing him.

Judges Cale J. Bradford, Patricia A. Riley, and Carr L. Darden will hear the arguments, which begin at 1:40 p.m. in the high school’s Little Theater, 7802 Hague Road, Indianapolis.
