Case Summary

S-16-0190, State v. Robyn J. Wood (Appellant)

Douglas County District Court, Judge J. Russell Derr

Attorneys: Nathan A. Liss (Attorney General's Office) --- Jim K. McGough (McGoughLaw P.C., L.L.O.) (Appellant)

Criminal: 1st degree sexual assault of protected person, Class III felony; motion in limine

Proceedings below: Following a jury trial, Appellant was convicted and sentenced to probation.

Issues: 1) The district court erred in overruling Appellant's motion for new trial after the State offered no evidence that Appellant 'subjected' the victim to sexual penetration as required by the charged conduct, 2) the evidence was insufficient to support the verdict that the Appellant had subjected the victim to sexual penetration, and 3) the district court erred by overruling Appellant's motion in limine and allowing the jury to consider irrelevant evidence of Appellant's attendance at a sexual anonymous meeting that had no bearing on the charged conduct.
