West v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Following a jury trial, Reco Dehaven West, a/k/a Rico, was found guilty of malice murder and other offenses arising out of a home invasion that resulted in the shooting death of Nicolas Jackson II. On appeal, West argued the trial court erred in admitting evidence that he conspired and attempted to improperly influence a juror in his trial. He also claimed the evidence was insufficient to enable a rational trier of fact to find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of armed robbery and of felony murder predicated on the armed robbery. Finding no reversible error, the Georgia Supreme Court affirmed.
