Jefferson v. State

Facts:

That court reversed the judgments and remanded the case for new trials. Both the state and the defendant appealed.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • Every person causing the death of another as a result of the driving of an automobile in a grossly negligent manner, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor to be known as manslaughter by automobile. A conviction requires proof of gross negligence, which is defined in this context as a wanton or reckless disregard for human life. In each case, as a matter of law, the evidence must be sufficient beyond a reasonable doubt to establish that the defendant was grossly negligent, that is, that he had a wanton or reckless disregard for human life in the operation of an automobile. It deals with the state of mind of the defendant driver. Only conduct that is of extraordinary or outrageous character will be sufficient to imply this state of mind. Simple negligence will not be sufficient — even reckless driving may not be enough. Reckless driving may be a strong indication, but unless it is of extraordinary or outrageous character, it will ordinarily not be sufficient.
  • When a criminal defendant takes an appeal and succeeds in having his conviction reversed on a ground other than the sufficiency of the evidence, the Fifth Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clause does not preclude a retrial of the defendant on the same charges.
