Norris v. State

In Norris v. State, 338 Ark. 397, 993 S.W.2d 918 (1999), the issue on appeal was the extent of the consent given. In that case, our supreme court determined that the person who answered the door asked the officer to step inside merely because the family dog was barking; that this initial consent was limited to the officer's entry into the front door; and that the officer's attempt to enter further into the house in reliance on the initial consent exceeded that consent.
