Ind. Decisions - Another transfer grant

Here is another transfer grant from Tuesday that apparently did not make it to the list:

Darius V. Bowles v. State of Indiana (NFP) (May 31, 2007) where the 17-page COA opinion by Judge Barnes concluded:

We conclude that police lacked reasonable suspicion to search Bowles’ trash as is required under Litchfield and, therefore, issuance of a search warrant based on what was found in the trash was improper. However, the good faith exception to the exclusionary rule fully applies in this case because police clearly relied on the warrant in objective good faith under the legal standards in existence at the time. The trial court did not err in admitting the evidence recovered under the search warrant. We affirm.
