Property Crime & Fraud Cases

State of Wyoming v. D.M.--1995

Jurisdiction:     Campbell County District Court
Charges:           Grand Larceny (felony)
Defense:          Mr. Carter argued that while Defendant had in fact taken a vehicle and driven it several hundred miles, Defendant did not intend to “permanently deprive” the owner of the vehicle by virtue of the fact that Defendant had abandoned the vehicle in a public place without altering the appearance of the vehicle nor damaging the vehicle.
Disposition:     Acquitted at Jury Trial. (Convicted of misdemeanor joyriding.)

State of Wyoming v. D.B.--2007

Jurisdiction:     Campbell County District Court
Charges:          Identity Theft and Conspiracy
Defense:          Defendant was suffering from a severe mental illness that made her incapable of forming an intent to commit the charged crime.

State of Wyoming v. J.W.--2009

Jurisdiction:     Campbell County District Court
Charges:           First-Degree Arson
Defense:          The prosecution presented a taped confession of Defendant. Mr. Carter argued that the taped confession was obtained by improper coercion by law enforcement and that the physical evidence did not match the taped confession. Further, through cross-examination, Mr. Carter established that another individual was possibly involved in setting the fire in question.
Disposition:     Acquitted at Jury Trial.

State of Wyoming v. R.E.-M.--2010

Jurisdiction:     Campbell County District Court
Charges:           Possession of a Forged Writing with Intent to Defraud
Defense:          Defendant was a Mexican citizen and an undocumented worker in the United States. Defendant was detained following a traffic stop and was found to be in possession of a false identification.

Disposition:     Acquitted at Jury Trial.
