2nd Degree Assault
Defendant challenged his convictions of criminal vehicular operation and second degree assault with a dangerous weapon, arguing that the trial court erred in denying his proposed jury instruction defining a dangerous weapon, the prosecutor committed misconduct by misstating the evidence and using inflammatory language, and the cumulative effect of these trial errors deprived him of his due process right to a fair trial. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that CRIMJIG 13.10 did not misstate the law, and the prosecutor did not commit misconduct by advancing arguments calculated to inflame the jury's passions. Affirmed.
