The Indiana Court of Appeals has sided with the state in its appeal of a trial court’s ruling.

In State of Indiana vs. Renee Lynch, No. 49A02-1105-CR-529, Renee Lynch had successfully argued in trial court that all evidence of her intoxication while driving should be supressed, as the police officer who pulled her over did not have a reasonable suspicion to stop her.

But the appellate court agreed with the state that a police officer did have reasonable suspicion to stop Lynch’s car, as she did not turn left at an intersection from a clearly marked turn-only lane, committing an infraction. It reversed the trial court on Lynch’s motion to suppress.
