Tennant v. State

In Tennant v. State, 786 P.2d 339 (Wyo. 1990), the Court considered a prosecutor's reference to a defendant as a leech, bloodsucker, and predator on society and the prosecutor's suggestion that perhaps next time the defendant could choose crippled children as his victims. The Court concluded that, although the prosecutor's remarks were unprofessional, they did not fit within the kind of statements the Court has deemed prosecutorial misconduct under the plain error analysis. 786 P.2d at 346.
