Criminal Law Appellate Court Opinions

by Roy, Christopher

 

AC42617 - State v. Shawn G. ("The defendant, Shawn G., appeals from the judgment of conviction, rendered after a jury trial, of one count of possession of narcotics with intent to sell by a person who is not drug-dependent in violation of General Statutes (Rev. to 2017) § 21a-278 (b), one count of criminal possession of a revolver in violation of General Statutes § 53a-217c (a) (1), and one count of risk of injury to a child in violation of General Statutes § 53-21 (a) (1). On appeal, the defendant claims that (1) the evidence adduced at trial was insufficient to sustain his conviction of each of the three counts, and (2) the trial court violated his sixth amendment right to compulsory process by declining to issue a capias that he requested. We affirm in part and reverse in part the judgment of the trial court.")

AC43841 - State v. Goode ("The defendant, Gerry L. Goode, appeals from the judgment of conviction, rendered after a jury trial, of criminal damage to a landlord's property in the first degree in violation of General Statutes § 53a-117e. On appeal, the defendant claims that the state presented insufficient evidence to establish the element of specific intent. We disagree, and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of conviction.")
