Criminal Law Supreme Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC20555 - State vs. Hinds (Conviction of murder, carrying a dangerous weapon; “Following a jury trial, the defendant, Metese Hinds, was convicted of murder in violation of General Statutes § 53a-54a (a) and carrying a dangerous weapon in violation of General Statutes § 53-206 (a). On appeal, he claims that two instances of prosecutorial impropriety, which occurred during the state’s closing and rebuttal arguments, deprived him of his due process right to a fair trial. We disagree and affirm the judgment of conviction.”)
