Shreck v. State (Majority, with Dissenting)Annotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was convicted of two counts of conspiracy to commit rape. Appellant was sentenced to thirty years’ imprisonment on each count. On appeal, Appellant argued that the circuit court erred by admitting into evidence, during the sentencing phase of his trial, conversations centered on “snuff” sex, which was described as killing someone during or after sex. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the circuit court did not abuse its discretion by admitting the evidence, as the evidence regarding snuff sex was both relevant and not unduly prejudicial.
