Supreme Court of North Dakota.

STATE of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee v. Cordell Antwane WILSON, Defendant and Appellant

No. 20220123

Decided: October 27, 2022

Wade G. Enget, State's Attorney, Stanley, ND, for plaintiff and appellee; submitted on brief. Laura C. Ringsak, Bismarck, ND, for defendant and appellant; submitted on brief.

[¶1] Cordell Wilson appeals from a criminal judgment entered following a jury verdict finding him guilty of one count of possession with the intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance under N.D.C.C. § 19-03.1-23(1)(a). On appeal, Wilson argues the evidence was insufficient to support the conviction, and the jury was tainted. After reviewing the record, we conclude substantial evidence exists for a jury to draw a reasonable inference that Wilson willfully possessed a controlled substance with the intent to manufacture or deliver. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3).

[¶2] Wilson also argues the jury was tainted. Wilson did not point out any evidence in the record or provide us with any legal authority on this issue. A party waives an issue by not providing adequate supporting argument. Lovro v. City of Finley, 2022 ND 145, ¶ 16, 978 N.W.2d 67. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(7).

Per Curiam.

[¶3] Jon J. Jensen, C.J. Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jerod E. Tufte Allen Schmalenberger, S.J.[¶4] The Honorable Allen Schmalenberger, S.J., sitting in place of VandeWalle, J., disqualified.
