Highlight

Persons accused of crimes have a constitutional right to a trial by an impartial jury.
An appellate court will not set aside a verdict merely on a whimsy or fanciful notion that prejudicial misconduct occurred.
A defendant on a criminal charge has a constitutional right to be present in the courtroom at every stage of the trial, but the right is not absolute and can be waived by the defendant.
