Search, Exigent Circumstances: BISHOP V. COM. (COA 10/5/2007)

BISHOP V. COM.
CRIMINAL: EXIGENT CIRCUMSTANCES

2006-CA-001636
PUBLISHED: AFFIRMING
PANEL: VANMETER PRESIDING; KELLER GUIDUGLI CONCUR
COUNTY: MADISON
DATE RENDERED: 10/05/2007

TC did not err by denying Bishop’s motion to suppress evidence seized from the trunk of his vehicle. TC did not clearly err by finding that a search was justified by the exigent circumstances created when an active methamphetamine lab was found in the trunk of a car parked in an apartment complex lot next to an elementary school. Defendant’s convictions and 10 year sentence affirmed.
