State v. Zetina-TorresAnnotate this Case
Appellant was convicted of one count of second-degree drug trafficking. Appellant appealed, challenging the sufficiency of the evidence to support his conviction and alleging trial error. The court of appeals reversed and remanded the case due to the State’s discovery violations and the circuit court’s error in refusing to grant Appellant a continuance. After a second trial, Appellant was again convicted of second-degree trafficking. On appeal, Appellant alleged that the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction and that that circuit court erred in instructing the jury. The court of appeals affirmed. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) there was sufficient evidence to support Appellant’s conviction, and therefore, the circuit court did not err in overruling Appellant’s motion for judgment of acquittal; and (2) the circuit court did not plainly err in instructing the jury.
