Statement of Issues:
|State of Oregon v. Terry Lavell Haynes, (S060103) (on direct appeal under ORS 138.060(1)(c); appeal of order entered by Multnomah County Circuit Court). |
The state appeals pursuant to ORS 138.060(1)(c) from a pretrial order suppressing evidence that the state wished to present in defendant's trial for murder.
On review, the issues are:
(1) Is the police record of the 1994 Vancouver arrest for kidnapping relevant and admissible for a noncharacter purpose, specifically, to show defendant's proximity to the scene of Johnson's murder on the night of that murder and his consciousness of guilt/ flight from the scene of the murder?
(2) Is the entire recorded interview with defendant relevant and admissible because it is necessary context for determining the truth or falsity of defendant's denial of any memory of the homicide or the victim?
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.
