10:20 a.m. 66A03-1306-JS-220. Walden Inn and Conference Center, DePauw University. J.K was adjudicated delinquent for acts of illegal possession and illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage and aiding illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage.  J.K. argues the juvenile court admitted evidence obtained in violation of his rights under the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.  Police received a complaint regarding juveniles making noise in the neighborhood and arrived at J.K.’s residence at approximately 1 a.m.  Two officers went around each side of the residence while a third officer remained at the front, knocking on the door.  Believing that underage drinking was taking place inside, the officers remained at the residence for over an hour until two juveniles, including J.K., eventually opened the front door.  An officer spoke with J.K.’s mother via telephone, and the officers entered the residence without a warrant..  J.K. argues any consent to enter was tainted by an unconstitutionally lengthy “knock-and-talk.”  The State contends exigent circumstances allowed for the warrantless entry, regardless of consent.

  1. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
