Docket Number: S-12-0229


Appeal from the District Court of Campbell County, Honorable John R. Perry, Judge

Representing Appellant (Plaintiff/Defendant): Diane Lozano, State Public Defender, PDP; Tina N. Olson, Chief Appellate Counsel; Kirk A. Morgan, Senior Assistant Appellate Counsel. Argument by Mr. Morgan.

Representing Appellee (Plaintiff/Defendant): Gregory A. Phillips, Wyoming Attorney General; David L. Delicath, Deputy Attorney General; Theodore R. Racines, Senior Assistant Attorney General; Darrell D. Jackson, Faculty Director, PAP; Emily N. Thomas, Student Director, PAP. Argument by Ms. Thomas.

Date of Decision: July 11, 2013

Facts: Morris Eugene Grimes was convicted after a jury trial of felony interference with a peace officer. On appeal, he claims the evidence that the officer was injured by his actions was insufficient to support the conviction.

Issues: Mr. Grimes presents the following issue on appeal: Whether there was sufficient evidence to support, beyond a reasonable doubt, a conviction for interference with a police officer in violation of Wyo. Stat. Ann. § 6-5-204(b)? The State presents essentially the same issue.

Holdings: We conclude the evidence, viewed in accordance with our standard of review, supports the jury’s decision. Consequently, we affirm.
