Criminal Law Supreme Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC20438 - State v. Gary S. (“On appeal, the defendant claims that (1) the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction on certain counts, and (2) the prosecutor made improper remarks during closing and rebuttal arguments that deprived the defendant of his constitutional right to a fair trial. Because the state concedes that the evidence presented at trial was insufficient to support the defendant’s conviction on the charge of risk of injury to a child pertaining to one of the complainants, A, we reverse the trial court’s judgment with respect to that count. We reject each of the defendant’s remaining claims and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of conviction in all other respects.”)
