Supreme Court of North Dakota.

STATE of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee v. Michelynn Kaye RUDDELL, Defendant and Appellant

No. 20190139

Decided: October 29, 2019

Joseph K. Nwoga, Assistant State’s Attorney, Jamestown, N.D., for plaintiff and appellee. Kiara C. Kraus-Parr, Grand Forks, N.D., for defendant and appellant.

[¶1] Michelynn Ruddell appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury found her guilty of eight drug-related charges. She argues the district court erred in denying her motion for acquittal and insufficient evidence supports the guilty verdicts on counts one, two, four, and seven. Viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the verdict, we conclude sufficient evidence exists that could allow a jury to draw a reasonable inference in favor of conviction. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3).

Per Curiam.

[¶2] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J. Jerod E. Tufte Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jon J. Jensen
