State v. RansburgAnnotate this Case
In a court-tried case, Defendant was found guilty of second-degree assault and armed criminal action. Defendant appealed, arguing, inter alia, that the circuit court erred in overruling his motion for judgment of acquittal at the close of evidence. The Supreme Court affirmed the circuit court’s judgment, holding that the State presented sufficient evidence that Defendant attempted to cause physical injury by means of a dangerous instrument, and therefore, the circuit court did not err in overruling Defendant’s motion for judgment of acquittal. Further, because Defendant’s second point on appeal was predicated on the success of his first point, it was also denied.
