State v. Hummel, 2017 UT 19, 393 P.3d 314 (Apr. 4, 2017)

The Unanimous Verdict Clause of the Utah Constitution does not require unanimity as to theories, methods, or modes of the crime.  Rather, all that is required is unanimity as to guilt—that the prosecutor has proven each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt.
