Unpublished Case
Rendered Date:

The appellant, after being sentenced to life in prison, brought four claims of error on appeal. He claimed the trial court improperly allowed a nurse to testify to a doctor’s notes; that the trial court erred by not granting a directed verdict on the third rape charge; that palpable error occurred when testimony prohibited by Kentucky Revised Statute (KRS) 532.055(2)(a) was entered into evidence; and that palpable error occurred when a probation officer did not fully inform the jury about probation eligibility in relation to the sex offender treatment program (SOTP) requirements. The Supreme Court affirmed the lower court’s holding.
