Criminal Case Summaries 2009

2009-173-C.A.                        State v. Alfred Bishop                               (full court conference)


Defendant, pro se, appeals from a conviction of first-degree murder, burglary, three counts of discharge of a firearm during a violent crime, and two counts of felony assault.  He challenges the trial judge’s finding in March 2008 regarding his bail request. 




2010-184-C.A             State v. Adrian Shepard                                             (show cause)


In these consolidated cases, the defendant seeks review of a Superior Court adjudication of probation violation and appeals from the denial of his motion to correct and reconsider the sentence he received for violating his probation.  The defendant contends that the hearing justice acted unreasonably and arbitrarily in finding him to be a violator because the testimony of the complaining witness was not credible.  He also argues that his motion to reconsider should have been granted.
