Ellis was sentenced to home detention for felony dealing in cocaine. With the assistance of law enforcement, Community Corrections conducted a compliance check of Ellis’ home and discovered a substance believed to be marijuana and bundles of money. A warrant was attained, a subsequent search was conducted, and drug dealing paraphernalia and a substance believe to be cocaine were found. The Marion Superior Court suppressed the evidence, finding that Ellis’ Community Correction contract did not include a waiver of searches with reasonable suspicion. On the State’s appeal, the Court of Appeals reverse and remanded. State v. Ellis, 153 N.E.3d 305 (Ind. Ct. App. 2020). Ellis has petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
