Commonwealth v. Daniel Sinnott 2009 PA Super 114 (6/23/2009)

Topic: Ethnic Intimidation – Sufficiency of the Evidence

Summary: For a defendant to be convicted of ethnic intimidation, the evidence must show that the underlying crime was motivated by the defendant’s attitude towards the victim’s ethnicity. (In Sinnott’s case, the motivation for the crime appeared to be a dispute over money.)
