De Sacia v. State
In De Sacia v. State, 469 P.2d 369 (Alaska 1970), the Court held that when a defendant is tried for two or more crimes, and the trier of fact finds the defendant guilty of one or more charges but innocent of one or more other charges, these verdicts must be logically consistent. If the verdicts are not logically consistent, then the defendant's convictions must be reversed. De Sacia, 469 P.2d at 378.
The De Sacia decision further holds that, in these situations, the State is barred from retrying the defendant on those counts for which the defendant was acquitted, id. at 378-79, but the State is authorized to retry the defendant on those counts for which the defendant was convicted, id. at 379-381.
