West v. State (Original)Annotate this Case
Defendant was convicted of ten counts of possession of child pornography. The ten counts were for ten images of unknown children discovered in the "free space" of defendant's computer. In this petition for discretionary review, the State contended that the court of appeals erred in finding the evidence insufficient to support convictions against defendant. The court concluded that the majority misapplied the standard of review for sufficiency by focusing on the possible alternative explanations, rather than determining whether the jury's inference was reasonable based upon the cumulative force of all the evidence when considered in the light most favorable to the verdict. Therefore, the court reversed the judgment of the court of appeals and rendered a judgment affirming the trial court.
