Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer- See The Court of Appeal’s Decision on State v. Hutton

October 17, 2013

A recent Oregon Supreme Court decision brought about a new look at an appeal that the Court of Appeals of the State of Oregon had already affirmed.  The case is State v. Hutton.

In this case, Hutton was charged with fourth degree assault and harassment.  He originally filed an appeal because past evidence was admitted by the trial court that he had assaulted the Plaintiff before, although he had not been found guilty for those charges at the time of the trial court.

The Plaintiff submitted the evidence saying it was relevant to prove intent.  Originally the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s decision to admit the evidence, but upon the Supreme Court’s decision of State v. Pitt, they now reverse and remand the decision against Hutton.
