On September 12, 1988, Pedro Hernandez (defendant) was driving when he struck a car driven by Cecil Barrymore. Barrymore was killed in the collision. Hernandez admitted he had been drinking heavily prior to the accident. Several stickers, pins, and a sign were removed from Hernandez’s car and admitted into evidence at trial. The sign, stickers, and pins had drinking slogans printed on them that advocated excessive drinking. Hernandez appeals the inclusion of the slogans as evidence. He argues that the slogans were irrelevant to proving criminal negligence, and that they were introduced solely to show that he possessed bad character.
