Supreme Court of North Dakota.

STATE of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee v. Jose Javier RIVERA-RIEFFEL, Defendant and Appellant

No. 20200210

Decided: January 12, 2021

Julie A. Lawyer, State's Attorney, Bismarck, N.D., for plaintiff and appellee; submitted on brief. Benjamin C. Pulkrabek, Mandan, N.D., for defendant and appellant; submitted on brief.

[¶1] Jose Javier Rivera-Rieffel appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury convicted him of murder and child abuse. He argues the evidence presented at trial is insufficient to support the jury's verdict. After reviewing the record, we conclude substantial evidence supports the verdict. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3).

Per Curiam.

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