At the Law Office of Jacob Rigney, we pride ourselves on making complicated legal issues simple. Accordingly, we present “one sentence case law reviews.” The rules are simple, we read an entire judicial opinion and boil it down to one sentence for you. Enjoy.
Adetokunbo v. State (12 pages)
You can be convicted of Battery for punching someone and resisting law enforcement for stiffening your arms when an officer attempted to handcuff you.
Stewart v. Warrick (15 pages)
A Trial Court can overrule a jury verdict and order a new trial when the jury’s verdict is irreconcilable with any reasonable interpretation of the evidence.
Lewis v. State (9 pages)
If you commit a felony battery and a misdemeanor battery with different victims, those sentences can be stacked, and if your criminal history consists of multiple prior arrests and felony convictions, you can get the maximum sentence on both convictions.
