State v. Winfield

In State v. Winfield, 2006 UT 4, 128 P.3d 1171, the Court held that the doctrine of invited error precluded Winfield from contesting on appeal the composition of the jury that convicted him because he had affirmatively stated his acceptance of the jury in the trial court. Id. In other words, the doctrine of invited error--not abuse of discretion or plain error--applies to claims of juror bias made for the first time on appeal in those cases where the appellant affirmatively proclaims the acceptability of the jury in the trial court.
