The PEOPLE of the State of Colorado, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. Jason A. HOLT, Defendant-Appellee.

Colorado Court of Appeals, Div. II.

October 13, 2011.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Carol Chambers , District Attorney, David C. Jones , Senior Deputy District Attorney, Centennial, Colorado, for Plaintiff-Appellant.

Eric B. Fenster, LLC, Eric B. Fenster , Denver, Colorado, for Defendant-Appellee.

Opinion by Judge MILLER.

The People appeal the trial court's order vacating a jury's guilty verdict and ordering a new trial. We reverse and remand. In doing so, we conclude that a juror's statement during deliberations regarding the severity of a charged offense does not constitute extraneous information within the meaning of Colorado Rule of Evidence 606(b), if the statement is based on the juror's general knowledge or personal experience.
