[APPEALS] Eric Rasnick vs. State of Indiana 39A01-1211-CR-526

Entry Description

Eric Rasnick and Tamara Campbell burglarized a dorm room occupied by Hanover College students Sarah Lathrop and Christiana Haynes.  Both girls observed Rasnick and Campbell in the dormitory lobby moments before they returned to their room and realized certain items had been stolen.  They ran out of the dormitory and chased after the car containing Rasnick and Campbell just as it sped away.  They then called the police and Rasnick and Campbell were apprehended shortly thereafter.  Lathrop and Haynes identified both Rasnick and Campbell in a “show-up” identification procedure.

Rasnick was charged with class B felony burglary and Class D felony theft.  He filed a motion to suppress the “show-up” identification by Lathrop and Haynes, claiming that it was impermissibly suggestive.  He also sought to suppress the evidence seized from the car pursuant to the identification and any evidence that revealed that he was on a Scott County Community Corrections GPS monitoring system at the time of the burglary.  The trial court denied his motions and he was found guilty of Class B felony burglary and Class D felony theft.  He was ordered to serve an aggregate sentence of thirty-six years.

On appeal, Rasnick claims that the trial court erred in denying his motions to suppress because the “show-up” identification was unduly suggestive and, therefore, any evidence obtained pursuant to the identification, as well as the identification itself, must be suppressed.  He further argues that the evidence that he was being monitored via GPS tracking was unfairly prejudicial.  He also argues that the State presented insufficient evidence to support his convictions and that his sentence is inappropriate in light of the nature of his offense and his character.

The Scheduled Panel Members are Judges Najam, Kirsch, and, Mathias.
