Criminal Practice – Pre-Trial Statements – Jury & Jurors – Deliberations – Inadvertent Exposure (access required)

State v. Hill Where defendant’s pre-trial statements, which were not admitted into evidence, were inadvertently provided to the jury during deliberations, and where these statements contradicted defendant’s trial testimony in some respects, defendant was prejudiced by the provision of these statements to the jury, especially since the jury considered them to be important evidence. Defendant is entitled to a new trial.
