Indiana Court of Appeals Oral Argument - 10 a.m. (CST)
The Court will hear State of Indiana v. Andrew M. Royer, 20A-PC-955, a post-conviction relief case out of Elkhart County.
The State appeals the post-conviction court's grant of Andrew Royer's successive petition for post-conviction relief. The post-conviction court found that newly discovered evidence of unconstitutional conduct by the State during Royer's 2005 felony murder trial entitled Royer to a new trial. The State argues the evidence Royer offered at his post-conviction hearing regarding the reliability of his confessions to police was known at trial or could have been discovered with the exercise of reasonable diligence; immaterial; cumulative; merely impeaching; and/or would not probably produce a different result at retrial. Royer argues that the State used false evidence implicating Royer's co-defendant to link Royer to the crime; failed to disclose material, exculpatory evidence; and failed to disclose critical impeachment evidence.
A moderated Q & A with the Judges will follow the Oral Argument on Zoom. Register for the Q & A here. Zoom details will be provided upon confirmation.
