In a case of first impression in South Carolina, the S.C. Court of Appeals ruled that evidence of a suicide attempt was admissible as evidence of the Defendant’s guilt. The case was State v. Juan Orozco, which is found online at http://www.sccourts.org/opinions/displayOpinion.cfm?caseNo=4798
Logically, it does make sense once you think it through. After all, if evidence of flight of one accused of a crime is admissible as probative of guilt, would not evidence of attempt to die and thus escape the consequences of the accused act also be properly admitted?
