Oral arguments: Constitution Day, Kansas Court of Appeals Hearings
Location: CAC Theater

Join us on Constitution Day for an oral argument about two Kansas Court of Appeals hearings.

State v. Andrey L. Wheeler, No. 108,311 (Sedgwick County). Wheeler challenges the constitutionality of a police search of him after he was stopped for jaywalking and arrested for allegedly resisting the officers by failing to remove his hand from his pocket. Police found cocaine in the pocket.

State v. Kyndall Orange, No. 108,806 (Cowley County). An SUV Orange was driving and rolled over resulting in the death of a passenger. Orange was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He contends the police improperly obtained a confession from him when they interrogated him without his lawyer present and after he invoked his rights under Miranda.

Oral arguments: Constitution Day, Kansas Court of Appeals
Location: CAC Theater

Join us on Constitution Day for oral arguments over two Kansas Court of Appeals hearings.

State v. Mical Barlow, No. 108,830 (Seward County). The State appeals the district court's ruling vacating a jury verdict convicting Barlow of attempted murder on the grounds that he was immune from prosecution under Kansas's self-defense law.

State v. Jesse W. LeGrand, No. 108,389 (Sedgwick County). A jury convicted LeGrand of aggravated burglary for breaking into a woman's home but found him not guilty of kidnapping. Among other errors, LeGrand contends the prosecutor's closing argument was improper and deprived him of a fair trial.

Oral arguments: Constitution Day, Kansas Court of Appeals
Location: CAC Theater

Join us on Constitution Day for oral arguments over three Kansas Court of Appeals hearings.

State v. Junior Sanchez, No. 108,362 (Seward County). Sanchez pled guilty to aggravated battery and argues the judge improperly sentenced him to prison instead of granting him probation based on testimony admitted in the trial of his co-defendant, at which neither Sanchez nor his law was present, indicating the crime was gang related. Sanchez contends that violated his constitutional rights to due process and to confront witnesses against him.

State v. Allen Thompson, No. 108,598 (Sedgwick County). A jury convicted Thompson of various sex offenses involving children and production of child pornography. As suggested in a recent Kansas Supreme Court case, he contends the presence of the investigating detective near the prosecutor's table throughout the trial tainted the trial and the verdict.

State v. Timothy Sumpter, No. 108,364 (Sedgwick County). A jury convicted of Sumpter of kidnapping, attempted rape, and sexual battery. He contends presenting three separate cases against him in a single jury trial rendered the proceeding unduly prejudicial. He also contends the prosecutor gave an improper closing argument and other trial errors deprived him of a fair hearing.
