The court of appeals reversed the appellant's conviction, agreeing that the lack of an accomplice-witness instruction egregiously harmed him. The likelihood that the jury would have accepted the appellant's exculpatory evidence is too remote to justify a conclusion that the corroborating evidence presented by the State was so unconvincing in fact as to render the State's overall case for conviction clearly and significantly less persuasive. The court of appeals' judgment is reversed and remanded. Court of Criminal Appeals, No. PD-1521-11, 11-21-2012.
