• Connecticut Appellate Court
  • Keller, J.
In the 2003 case of State v. Knight, where proceedings before the jury and the court occurred simultaneously, the Connecticut Supreme Court rejected the defendant's claim, brought under the double jeopardy clause of the federal constitution, that the trial court was collaterally estopped from finding guilt as to a criminal possession count because the jury already had found the facts related to that count in his favor.
