1 p.m. 34A02-1111-CR-1050.Seeger Jr.-Sr. High School, Fine Arts, Center,1222 South St., Road 263, West Lebanon, Indiana 47991. As a result of a narcotics investigation by the Kokomo Police Department, Vanzyll was arrested and convicted of several methamphetamine-related offenses and resisting law enforcement. Specifically, Vanzyll resided in a home in which police officers discovered a methamphetamine lab pursuant to a search warrant. When Kokomo police officers initially attempted to gain access to the residence, Vanzyll opened the back door, saw the officers, ran back into the house and shut the door. The officers ordered Vanzyll to return to the back door, and he eventually complied, at which time he was arrested. Vanzyll raises three issues on appeal. First, he challenges the admission of incriminating statements he made to corrections officers while he was in custody at the Howard County Jail. Next, Vanzyll argues that the evidence that he returned to his residence and closed the back door after noticing KPD officers outside and failed to immediately return to the back door of his residence when ordered to do so by the police is insufficient to prove that he committed the criminal offense of resisting law enforcement. And, finally, Vanzyll argues that the evidence is insufficient to support his conviction for dealing methamphetamine because the State presented no evidence that there was an active methamphetamine lab in his residence on the date of the search.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
