USI Law Day observance features Court of Appeals oral argument
On appeal, felon challenges firearm conviction and sentence for child pornography possession


INDIANAPOLIS – The Court of Appeals of Indiana will hear oral argument in Wood v. State at the University of Southern Indiana on Friday, April 5. The argument will start at 1 p.m. local time in the conference center of University Center East.

A panel of Judges John G. Baker, Melissa S. May and Senior Judge Carr L. Darden will hear the case on appeal from Marion County. The event is part of the university’s annual Law Day observance.

Reporters, including student journalists, may ask the court’s permission to video or photograph the oral argument. Requests must be faxed to Court Administrator Steve Lancaster (317-233-4627) at least 48 hours before the scheduled start of the argument. Per Indiana Supreme Court order, all cameras must be tripod mounted and cannot employ flash or strobe lighting. All recording is limited to the oral argument itself; no recording will be allowed during a short Q/A between the judges and audience that will follow the argument.

About this case: Wood challenges the constitutionality of his conviction of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and the imposition of a sentence longer than four years for his five convictions of possession of child pornography.

The Court of Appeals hears oral arguments across Indiana to enable Hoosiers to observe the court in action and learn more about its indispensable role in Indiana government. This will be the court’s 362nd “Appeals on Wheels” event since the court’s 2000-2001 centennial.
