Criminal Law: Elder Abuse-Jury Instruction

Where a defendant challenged his conviction for elder abuse after he punched an elderly neighbor, the defendant failed to append a challenged jury instruction so the point was not preserved for review, and the judgment is affirmed because the defendant did not show that the trial court erred by not allowing him the opportunity to argue in support of his motion for acquittal at the close of the evidence.

Judgment is affirmed.

State v. Villeme (MLW No. 73216/Case No. ED105967 – 8 pages) (Missouri Court of Appeals, Eastern District, Odenwald, J.) Appealed from circuit court, Monroe County, Mobley, J. (Andrew S. Garnett for appellant) (Garrick F.D. Aplin for respondent).
