Sharma v. State
Nevada Supreme Court
56 P.3d 868 (2002)
Amit Ranadey, Rajesh Vig, Anthony Barela, Arthur Richardson, and Sonu Sharma (defendant) were all associates who appeared to have been involved in the sale of illegal drugs. At some point, a dispute apparently arose between Ranadey and Barela. Ranadey concocted a plan with some of the others to attack Barela, but apparently the group later decided to attack Ranadey instead. The outcome of these convoluted disputes was that Ranadey was shot in the back in the presence of Vig, Barela, Richardson, and Sharma, although Ranadey did not know which of the four men had in fact shot him. All four men were charged with the attempted murder of Ranadey, and Sharma was tried first. Sharma maintained that he did not fire the shot but was eventually convicted of attempted murder with the use of a deadly weapon. Sharma’s appeal eventually came before the Nevada Supreme Court. The court issued an order directing the parties to file supplemental briefs that addressed the level of intent required to be convicted of aiding and abetting an attempted murder.
