SC - Bauer - Unanimous Verdict

Bauer v. Commonwealth – 12-SC-241 – not to be pub. – Affirming in part, reversing in part, and remanding

Bauer’s conviction for manufacturing meth must be reversed and remanded for a new trial because the court found palpable error where jury instruction violated unanimity by covering two separate instances of the offense. Molly Mattingly represented Ms. Bauer on appeal.
