Statement of Issues:
|State of Oregon v. Jerrin Lavazie Hickman (S061409) (A144741) (appeal from Multnomah County Circuit Court; opinion reported at 255 Or App 688, 298 P3d 619 (2013)).|
The State of Oregon has been granted review of a Court of Appeals decision that reversed and remanded the murder conviction of defendant Jerrin Lavazie Hickman.
On review, the issues are:
(1) How does the test for the admissibility of eyewitness identification evidence in State v. Lawson/James, 352 Or 724, 291 P3d 673 (2012), apply to an in-court identification, if no attempt at a pretrial identification preceded it?
(2) If the admission of eyewitness identification evidence was error under Lawson/James, does the error warrant reversal regardless of whether the error prejudiced the defendant?
The foregoing summary of a Supreme Court case that is scheduled for oral argument has been prepared for the benefit of the public. Parties and practitioners should rely on neither the factual summary set out above, nor the statement of issues to be decided, as delineating the questions that the Supreme Court ultimately may consider on review. See generally Oregon Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.20.
