State v. Granados, 2019 UT App 158 (Sept. 26, 2019)

Sep 26, 2019

Defendant appealed convictions stemming from a shooting and subsequent police chase.  Among other challenges, the defendant argued that the trial court erred in dismissing a juror caught sleeping through significant portions of a trial without questioning the juror.  Affirming, the court of appeals held “district courts have considerable discretion in determining how best to resolve” sleeping juror issues under Utah R. Crim. P. 17(g).  Id. ¶ 39.
