Wyatt v. State, 2021 UT 32 (July 15, 2021)

Rule 17(k) of the Utah Rules of Criminal Procedure does not automatically bar testimonial exhibits from going back with the jury, but instead allows the trial court to exercise its broad discretion on whether to allow the jury to have such exhibits during its deliberations. Here, the district court did not abuse its discretion when permitting a recording of a police interview to go back with the jury, where the exhibit was directed at the defendant’s credibility and used to illustrate his capacity for lying.
