State v. Perkins

Justia Opinion Summary  Following a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of burglary, theft by unauthorized taking, and violation of a condition of release. The court imposed an aggregate sentence of seven years' imprisonment. On appeal, Defendant argued, inter alia, that the trial court effectively prevented him from testifying when, prior to trial, it reserved ruling on the extent to which the State would be permitted to impeach his potential testimony. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the trial court did not obviously err in declining to give Defendant a pretrial ruling; and (2) the evidence was sufficient to support the jury's verdict.
