Supreme Court of North Dakota.

STATE of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee v. Francisco Eugenio BETHANCORTH, Defendant and Appellant

No. 20200020

Decided: June 29, 2020

Mary E. Depuydt, Special Assistant State's Attorney, Wishek, ND, for plaintiff and appellee. Benjamin C. Pulkrabek, Mandan, ND, for defendant and appellant.

[¶1] Francisco Eugenio Bethancorth appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury found him guilty of criminal trespass. He argues his degree of intoxication prevented him from knowing that he was not licensed or privileged to enter or remain in a dwelling or highly secured premises, and the district court erred by denying his motion for acquittal. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(4).

Per Curiam.

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