1DCA: Peremptory Challenge bc Juror Gave Prosecutor a “Dirty Look”

Reversing conviction for possession of XLR11 (commonly referred to as K2, Spice, or Synthetic Marijuana) and methamphetamine,the trial court erred in allowing a peremptory challenge to strike an African-American juror where the State’s race-neutral reason—that the juror gave the prosecutor a dirty look—was neither observed by the trial court nor supported by the record.
