1 p.m. 49A02-1307-CR-606. Terre Haute South High School. Aubrey Thompson appeals her conviction for Class B misdemeanor public intoxication.  On November 18, 2012, officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched to the residence of Thompson’s friends Denise Robinson to investigate an altercation between Robinson and her boyfriend.  Thompson was present when the officers arrived on the scene, and the officers observed her to be intoxicated.  As the officers questioned Robinson and her boyfriend about the alleged altercation, Thompson interrupted several times.  Each time, the officers asked Thompson to step away.  Eventually, Thompson retrieved her purse and advised that she intended to drive away.  Fearing that Thompson was putting herself and others on the roadway in danger, the officers arrested Thompson for public intoxication.  Thompson claims there is insufficient evidence that she endangered herself or others.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
