The Indiana Court of Appeals travels north to a Syracuse high school Thursday to hear arguments in a case involving the search and discovery of drugs in a car.

In Jerald J. Womack v. State of Indiana, 43A03-0706-CR-251, Womack appealed his convictions and sentence for Class D felony marijuana possession and for being a habitual controlled-substance offender. The Court of Appeals will determine whether the police search of Womack's car violated his rights under the U.S. and Indiana constitutions and if the state proved the marijuana found in Womack's car was in his possession. The court will also have to decide if Womack's aggregate nine-year sentence is inappropriate in light of the nature of his offenses and his character.

Arguments begin at 9:30 a.m. at Wawasee High School, 1 Warrior Path #1, Syracuse. This is the first time the court has heard arguments at Wawasee High School. Chief Judge John Baker and Judges Terry Crone and Cale Bradford will hear the case on appeal from Kosciusko Circuit Court.
