McLynnerd Bond, Jr. v. State of Indiana
9 a.m. No. 45S03-1309-CR-597. While Bond was under arrest on an unrelated charge, a Gary police detective questioned Bond about a murder. The detective told Bond it was unlikely anyone from his “part of the hood” would be on his jury. During the interview, Bond confessed to the murder. Prior to trial on the murder charge, Bond moved to suppress the interview contending that his confession had been involuntary. The Lake Superior Court “strongly discouraged” police from telling defendants they could not receive a fair and impartial jury due to location of the courthouse, but denied the motion to suppress. A divided Court of Appeals affirmed in Bond v. State, No. 45A03-1205-CR-212 (Ind. Ct. App. May 31, 2013) (NFP mem. dec.), vacated. The Supreme Court has granted a petition to transfer the case and has assumed jurisdiction over the appeal.
