State v. Ward

The Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the court of appeals reversing Defendant’s convictions for theft by deception and making false information, holding that there was insufficient evidence supporting the convictions. One issue in this appellate challenge was whether the State presented sufficient evidence to support the actual elements of making false information, regardless of whether it could have successfully prosecuted Defendant for forgery. The Supreme Court held (1) the State did not prove that Defendant committed theft by deception; and (2) the State failed to meet its burden to prove the first element of the crime of making false information, and therefore, Defendant’s conviction must be reversed.
