CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether defendant’s stalking conviction must be vacated?
Defendant was convicted of 2 counts of stalking. Defendant appealed. On appeal, he argued that the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions. The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals held that as to the first count, the evidence was sufficient as to that victim. However, on the second count, the government failed to show that the defendant traveled in interstate commerce with the intention to harass the second victim, so that conviction must be vacated.
State v. Gross, 20-3167, Kelly, J. Appealed from the United States District Court, Western District of Missouri.
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
