Justices will visit Lake County for arguments in drug case

The Indiana Supreme Court travels to Merrillville High School May 9 for oral arguments dealing with the admittance of drug evidence after a vehicle search.

In the case, Phillip T. Billingsley v. State of Indiana, 02S05-1303-CR-160, the police received a 9-1-1 call from a citizen, which led to the car Phillip Billingsley was riding in being pulled over. A search of the car revealed marijuana. The Allen Superior Court allowed the drug into evidence, and he was convicted of Class D felony possession of marijuana. A split Indiana Court of Appeals affirmed.

The arguments begin at 11 a.m. CDT in the high school at 276 E. 68th Place, Merrillville. They are open to the public, but seating will be limited. Contact the Lake County Bar Association at 219-738-1905 for reserved seating.
