Court of Appeals Hand down 9/8

Posted in Uncategorized on September 10, 2009 by tobywelchlaw

There were two reported criminal decisions on Tuesday.  The first, Davis v. State was a typical PCR that was denied by the trial court and affirmed by the Court.  The second was Lewis v. State, a simple possession of controlled subtances case, with the updated “momentary possession” defense.  Lewis felt that since he only had the crack momentarily, he wasn’t guilty.   As would be expected, the Court did not buy the argument.

Not much happening today with the COA.  The only criminal opinion is Poss v. State, a Post Conviction action where Mr. Poss filed a successive PCR and it was denied.
