[APPEALS] State of Indiana v. Andrew M. Royer, 20A-PC-955

Wednesday, February 10, 2021 11:00am to 11:40am

[APPEALS] State of Indiana v. Andrew M. Royer, 20A-PC-955
Add to calendar

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.

The scheduled panel members are Judges May, Brown, and Weissmann.
