In this extended jurisdiction juvenile delinquency appeal, defendant contended that the trial court (1) abused its discretion by admitting evidence that witnesses feared him, suggesting bad character; and (2) committed plain error by failing to give an accomplice corroboration jury instruction. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that, based on the overall weight of the additional evidence offered against defendant, the fear evidence did not substantial affect the jury’s verdict. Affirmed.
In re Welfare of C.W.A., A17-0633, Wabasha County.
