Green vs State - Texas Court of Appeals - August 24, 2010


A jury found appellant, Gregory Carl Green, guilty of the first degree felony offense of failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements—specifically failing to report an intended change in address seven days prior to the anticipated move. See Tex. Crim. Proc. Code Ann. arts. 62.102(b)(3), 62.102(c), 62.055(a) (Vernon 2006). The jury assessed punishment at eight years' confinement in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. In two issues, appellant contends: (1) the evidence is factually insufficient to support his conviction and (2) the trial court erred by admitting evidence of a past conviction for indecency with a child. We agree the evidence is factually insufficient to support appellant's conviction and, accordingly, reverse and remand.
