Decisions – Miss.S.Ct. – Jan. 12, 2017


Justin Crockett v. State of Mississippiheadlighting deer – Crockett was convicted of headlighting deer and sentenced to five days with all five suspended and revocation of his hunting license for three years.  The charges arose after a truck carrying three dead deer was stopped in Panola County on January 30, 2014.  The three men in the car told law enforcement that they had been headlighting deer with Crockett.  On appeal, Crockett claims the evidence was insufficient.  The Miss.S.Ct. affirms.

The Court amends the Rule of Appellate Procedure by striking  the Court Reporter’s Acknowledgment forms “because court reporters are no longer required to acknowledge receipt of the designation of record and the certificate of compliance.”   The Court also amends MRAP 11 to include instructions for the preparation of the record in electronic form.
