Criminal Law Supreme Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC20332 - State v. Jose A. B. (Three counts of sexual assault or attempt to commit sexual assault and two counts of risk of injury to a child; “On appeal, the defendant claims that (1) the trial court improperly overruled his Batson3 objection to the prosecutor’s exercise of peremptory challenges to two venirepersons, and (2) his conviction of two counts of risk of injury to a child violates his right to be free from double jeopardy. We disagree, and, accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
