State v. Garcia-Garcia

The Supreme Court affirmed Defendant's convictions of attempted capital murder, kidnapping, burglary, and interference with law enforcement but vacated the court's order that Defendant pay a percentage of the attorney fees incurred for his defense, holding that the district court violated statutory requirements by imposing the fees as a percentage without knowing what the total amount was. Specifically, the Court held (1) this Court had jurisdiction despite a misdirected notice of appeal; (2) the trial court did not abuse its discretion by allowing evidence about Defendant's criminal acts in Oklahoma; (3) any error on the part of the prosecutor in making certain comments during trial was harmless; (4) the trial court did not err in instructing the jury; and (5) the trial court erred in ordering Defendant to pay thirty percent of the attorney fees without knowing how much they were.
