People v. Darren Denson

November 30, 2014, Case No. 2014-IL-116231

On appeal, the defendant argued that the trial court erred in (1) admitting the coconspirator statements that were the subject of the State’s motion in limine, and (2) allowing the State to elicit a prior consistent statement from one of its witnesses. With respect to defendant’s first argument, the appellate court held that defendant forfeited review of this issue both because he (1) failed to file a motion in limine of his own to exclude those statements; and (2) failed to raise a contemporaneous objection when the State introduced those statements at trial.
