The Court of Appeals of Indiana will be traveling west this week to hear oral arguments in case in which a man falsely impersonated a detective.

The appellate court will hear oral arguments in Kenyonn Sincere v. State of Indiana, 23A-CR-1172, at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at Terre Haute South High School.

Kenyonn Sincere was convicted of Class A misdemeanor false impersonation of a public servant after he was found to have falsely claimed to be a Marion County Sheriff’s detective in an interaction with the owner of the Fundae’s Ice Cream Shop in Speedway.

On appeal, Sincere is arguing the trial court erred in the admission of evidence and the deputy prosecutor committed prosecutorial misconduct — the cumulative effect of which, he says, requires reversal. Also, he argues there is insufficient evidence to sustain his conviction.

But the state is arguing the trial court did not abuse its discretion in admitting the challenged evidence, the deputy prosecutor did not commit prosecutorial misconduct and the evidence is sufficient to sustain Sincere’s conviction.

Judges Cale Bradford, Leanna Weissmann and Peter Foley will hear the case at the high school, located at 3737 S. 7th St. in Terre Haute.

The arguments will not be livestreamed, but video will be available within about a week of the hearing.
