Detective Mathis, a police officer, was told by an informant that an individual named Timmy was selling drugs out of Timmy’s mother’s house where Timmy lived. Mathis filed an affidavit with this information to get a search warrant, stating that he learned the information from a reliable informant. With the warrant, the police raided Timmy’s mother’s house and allegedly found Morgan (defendant) inside in possession of drugs. At trial, Morgan denied possessing the drugs. Morgan sought to introduce the statements of the informant that indicated that Timmy lived in the house and sold drugs out of it. These statements were contained in Mathis’s affidavit. The trial court ruled the statements inadmissible as hearsay. Morgan was convicted of possession of drugs with intent to distribute. He appealed.
