[APPEALS] Shotts v. State, 49A04-1509-CR-1347
Start Date: 3/22/2016Start Time: 11:00 AM
End Date: 3/22/2016End Time: 11:40 AM
Entry Description
Shotts was handcuffed and patted down after he walked into a house in which police officers were actively conducting a search for drugs. The officers found a handgun in Shotts's pocket, and Shotts was later convicted of possession of a handgun by a serious violent felon. Shotts argues that the handgun should have been suppressed because he was seized without probable cause in violation of the Fourth Amendment. The State argues that the officers' actions were justified under the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Michigan v. Summers (holding that occupants of a residence may be detained during a valid search) and or Terry v. Ohio (allowing a stop and frisk upon reasonable suspicion). The State further argues that the officer had probable cause to arrest Shotts for visiting a common nuisance and/or resisting arrest. Shotts also argues that his sentence is inappropriate.
