COA travels to West Lafayette for arguments

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indiana Court of Appeals will visit West Lafayette Tuesday to hear arguments in a case involving a warrantless search of a vehicle.

Chief Judge John Baker, and Judges Margret Robb and Cale Bradford will hear arguments at 10 a.m. in Michael W. George v. State of Indiana, No. 73A05-0808-CR-503, at West Lafayette Jr./Sr. High School, 1105 N. Grant St., West Lafayette.

Michael George was stopped in Shelby County for speeding, and a check showed his license was suspended. The sheriff's deputy issued a citation instead of arresting George and arranged to have his car impounded. Another sheriff's deputy arrived to inventory the car's contents, in which the police found narcotics. George was charged with possession of a controlled substance. The trial court denied his motion to suppress evidence obtained from the inventory. George appeals, arguing the search violated his Fourth Amendment and Indiana Article I, Section 11 rights.

The arguments will also be webcast live and can be accessed on the Indiana Courts' Web site.
