Garrison v. State

by
The Supreme Court affirmed the order of the trial court convicting Defendant on a charge of first-degree arson. On appeal, Defendant argued that the district court abused its discretion when, at trial, it admitted evidence of other acts, in violation of Wyo. R. Evid. 404(b). The Supreme Court disagreed, holding (1) the district court did not commit plain error when it conducted its Rule 404(b) Gleason analysis after the disputed Rule 404(b) evidence had been admitted and after the close of the evidence; and (2) the district court did not abuse its discretion when it admitted evidence of other acts at trial.
