LaJeunesse v. StateAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the district court convicting Defendant of two counts of sexual intrusion on a victim under Wyo. Stat. Ann. 6-2-314(a)(i), holding that the district court did not err when it admitted testimony under Wyo. R. Evid. 404(b) and 801(d)(1)(B) and did not violate Defendant's rights under the Confrontation Clause when it allowed the State to amend the felony information after the State had presented its witnesses.
Specifically, the Supreme Court held (1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting evidence of other acts under Rule 404(b) or in allowing the victim's prior consistent statements under Rule 801(d)(1)(B); and (2) the amendment to the felony information without a continuance did not deny Defendant his right to effectively cross-examine the witnesses or prejudice his defense.
