Jonathan Knight v. State
Case Number(s):
Loading the player...



Mr. Knight was convicted of possessing more than 20 grams of cannabis. On appeal, he
argued he should have been acquitted because the evidence against him was entirely
circumstantial and a reasonable hypothesis of innocence existed that the state failed to
refute. The Fifth District Court of Appeal upheld the conviction but certified conflict with
other Florida appellate courts in decisions dealing with circumstantial evidence and a
defendant’s reasonable hypothesis of innocence.
