State v. Solomon 2015 ME 96

Justia Opinion Summary

After a jury trial, Defendant was convicted of tampering with a juror and violating a condition of release. The trial court imposed a sentence of two years in prison. The Supreme Judicial Court affirmed, holding that the trial court did not err by (1) denying Defendant's motion to dismiss the indictment; (2) defining the term "juror" in the jury instructions; and (3) allowing lay witnesses to testify about whether they thought Defendant was trying to influence them by holding up sign in view of twenty-five to thirty potential jurors before crumpling up the piece of paper and discarding it.
