Case Caption: Denzil Ivan Stephens (Appellant/Defendant) vs. People of the Virgin Islands (Appellee/Plaintiff)Case Number: S.CT.Crim. No.: 2007-126Date: 09/15/2009Author: Cabret, Maria M. Citation: Summary:

The evidence was sufficient to sustain the defendant's convictions for attempted murder and possession an unlicensed firearm, and the Superior Court did not employ an incorrect standard in denying the defendant's motion for new trial based on the weight of the evidence. However, because the Government failed to establish that the defendant was not authorized to possess ammunition, his conviction on that count is reversed.
