Court upholds conviction related to roaming child

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Supreme Court says police had permission to search the home of a man convicted on drug charges after they found his daughter wandering half-naked in an apartment complex.

The court Friday upheld Nick McIlquham's conviction on neglect, firearms and drug-related charges.

Court documents say McIlquham invited police to inspect his apartment after they found his toddler daughter roaming near a retention pond in July 2011.

The ruling says officers who entered McIlquham's apartment found marijuana in the kitchen and an illegal gun in the bedroom.

McIlquham's attorney argued the search was unconstitutional because he and the child's mother were only allowing police to make sure the home was fit for the child.

The Associated Press left a message Saturday seeking comment from McIlquham's attorney.
