KYCOA - Canada - Directed Verdict Failure to Register

Directed Verdict should have been granted when the Commonwealth failed to prove the defendant knowingly failed to register as a sex offender. Mr. Canada advised his caseworker that he needed to move but was unable to contact her to approve his new residence prior to moving. 

Carolyn Clark-Cox did an excellent job arguing for directed verdict in the circuit court.
