Summer Snow v. State of Indiana; Reginald Harris v. State of Indiana - 4/21/17

4/21/17 10:30 am EST

10:30 a.m. 45S03-1703-CR-00169; 45S03-1703-CR-00172. In these two cases tried together, Summer Snow and her co-defendant Reginald Harris filed a motion to exclude evidence of Snow’s lawfully-possessed handgun.  The Lake Superior Court denied the motion, and the jury convicted Snow and Harris of battery against a public safety official, and convicted Snow of resisting law enforcement.  A majority of the Court of Appeals affirmed.  Snow v. State, 65 N.E.3d 1129 (Ind. Ct. App. 2016), vacated; Harris v. State, 66 N.E.3d 628 (Ind. Ct. App. 2016), vacated.  The Supreme Court has granted transfer and assumed jurisdiction over both appeals pursuant to Appellate Rule 56(A).  The Court will hold a combined oral argument in the two cases, but otherwise has not consolidated the appeals.
