On petition for rehearing, appellate court affirms original opinion in drug case

January 31, 2012

A man convicted of Class D felony possession of methamphetamine asked the Indiana Court of Appeals to review its original opinion affirming the trial court.

In Steven Nowling v. State of Indiana, No. 31A01-1010-CR-552, Steven Nowling asked the COA to review the testimony of William Bowles.

Bowles, a forensic scientist with the Indiana State Police Laboratory, testified that a pen hull found in Nowling's home tested positive for methamphetamine. Nowling did not object during trial. Therefore, the COA affirmed its original opinion.
