Idaho v. SkunkcapAnnotate this Case
These are two cases out of Bannock County that were consolidated on appeal. In the first case, defendant was convicted of attempting to elude a peace officer, a felony, and of malicious injury to property and assault, both misdemeanors. In the second case, defendant was convicted of grand theft, a felony. For each felony, he was sentenced to eighteen years in prison, with eight years fixed and ten years indeterminate, and the sentences were ordered to be served consecutively. On appeal of both cases, defendant challenged the evidence presented against him, and alleged procedural errors by the trial courts to reverse the sentences he received. Upon review, the Supreme Court found no reversible errors, and affirmed defendant's convictions and sentences.
