[APPEALS] McLynnerd Bond, Jr., vs. State of Indiana 45A03-1205-CR-212

End Date: 5/1/2013End Time: 10:40 AM
Entry Description

McLynnerd Bond, Jr. was arrested in the evening of February 12, 2011.  The next morning, an officer of the Gary Police Department questioned Bond about the 2007 murder of Kadmiel Mahone.  After being interviewed for approximately three hours, Bond admitted he shot Mahone.  He was charged with murder.  Bond filed a motion to suppress the interview in its entirety, claiming his statement was involuntarily given due to coercive tactics employed by the officer, including “explicit and repeated promises of a family visit once he confessed”; “repeated promises of a better outcome if he confessed”; and “the proffered alternative of facing a racist criminal justice system if he did not confess.”  The trial court, though greatly concerned by and strongly discouraging the “suggestion by the detective that the defendant could not receive a fair and impartial jury,” denied the motion to suppress.  The trial court certified its order and this court accepted jurisdiction of the interlocutory appeal to address whether the statement, in light of the officer’s questioning, was voluntary.

The Scheduled Panel Members are Chief Judge Robb, Judges Friedlander, and, Kirsch.
