Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court decides one today

In Bassett v. State, an 18-page, 5-0 opinion, Justice Sullivan writes:

Robert Bassett, Jr., appeals his four convictions for murder and sentences of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole primarily on grounds that the prosecuting attorney in this case listened to a number of non-confidential telephone conversations that Bassett had with his lawyer. This conduct did not violate Bassett’s legal rights or prejudice him at trial. We affirm the convictions and sentences.
