Criminal Practice – Possession of a Controlled Substance at a Prison – Handcuffed Defendant – Jury Instruction – No Prejudice   (access required)

State v. Stanley Although the trial court should have instructed the jury that it was not to consider the fact that defendant was handcuffed when it weighed evidence or determined the issue of guilt, given the evidence against defendant and the trial court’s instruction about incarceration, defendant was not prejudiced by the trial court’s failure to give the instruction about the handcuffs.
