State v. CoxAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court reversed the decision of the court of appeals reversing Defendant's convictions, holding that the State presented sufficient evidence at trial to show that Defendant possessed the felonious intent necessary to support his convictions.
Defendant was convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, felonious breaking or entering, and discharging a weapon into an occupied property. During trial, Defendant had moved to dismiss the charges against him for insufficiency of the evidence, but the trial court denied the motion. The court of appeals reversed Defendant's conviction for conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and for felonious breaking or entering on the basis of insufficiency of the evidence. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that, due to the existence of sufficient evidence regarding felonious intent, the trial court properly denied Defendant's motions to dismiss the charges against him.
