Robinson v. State

Appellant Kelly Robinson was convicted of three misdemeanors and one felony. All of the crimes arose in a domestic violence context. One of Robinson's misdemeanor convictions was the violation of a protection order, which resulted from Robinson mailing a letter to the victim, who had obtained a protection order. Robinson challenged his conviction for violation of the protection order, claiming that there was insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction for the crime charged. On appeal, the Supreme Court found that the record on appeal lacked evidence to support the conviction as charged. Because the circuit court found that Robinson's conduct constituted stalking as defined by Wyo. Stat. Ann. 6-2-506(b), the trial court erred in convicting Robinson under Wyo. Stat. Ann. 6-4-404(b). Because of the error, the Court reversed the conviction entered pursuant to Section 6-4-404, and affirmed the remainder of the judgment. Remanded. View "Robinson v. State" on Justia Law
