Salinas v. StateAnnotate this Case
After a jury trial, Appellant was found guilty of stalking. The district court sentenced Appellant to a term of three to five years in prison. Appellant appealed, arguing that the district court abused its discretion by not granting a mistrial for a violation of an order in limine concerning Wyo. R. Evid. 404(b) evidence and by imposing a discovery sanction that precluded the State from introducing untimely disclosed text messages but allowing the jury to hear testimony about them. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not err in not granting a mistrial and in not imposing a stiffer sanction for the discovery violation.
