Dockter v. State

Appellant appealed his convictions for kidnapping and misdemeanor theft of a cell phone, arguing that there was insufficient evidence to support the convictions. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) a reasonable jury could have found from the facts presented that the time the victim was forced to spend in her house with Appellant was sufficient to constitute confinement within the meaning of Wyoming’s kidnapping statute; and (2) there were sufficient facts for a jury to reasonably conclude that each of the elements of misdemeanor theft relating to the taking of an Apple iPhone was proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
