FOR IMMEDIATE NEWS RELEASE

NEWS RELEASE # 081

FROM : CLERK OF SUPREME COURT OF LOUISIANA


The Opinion handed down on the 8th day of November, 2002 , is as follows:



PER CURIAM:

2001-K- 0723 STATE OF LOUISIANA v. SAMUEL T. HILLS (Parish of Orleans) 
(Simple Possession of Cocaine)

The trial court therefore reached the correct result when it denied respondent's motion to suppress the evidence. To this extent, we reverse the decision of the court of appeal. However,
in all other respects, the court of appeal adequately treated respondent's remaining assignments of error. We therefore affirm those portions of the court of appeal's opinion, reinstate respondent's conviction and sentence, and remand the case to the district court for execution of sentence.

DECISION OF THE COURT OF APPEAL AFFIRMED IN PART AND REVERSED IN PART; CASE REMANDED.

CALOGERO, C.J., dissents and assigns reasons.

JOHNSON, J., dissents.
