State ex rel. Gibson v. Cornwell
In State ex rel. Gibson v. Cornwell, 14 Wyo. 526, 85 P. 977 (Wyo. 1906), where the State sought both a bill of exceptions and a petition in error, the Court held the petition would not be considered because the Court was without authority to decide questions raised by the State in a criminal case except as provided in the bill of exceptions statutes.
The Court said, "it is only upon a compliance with the provisions of the statute in question that this court obtains jurisdiction to review any ruling of the district court adverse to the State in criminal prosecutions." Id. at 979.
