Highlight

Application of N.D.C.C. 1-02-17 to eliminate the punishment of imprisonment for a criminal statute that was repealed after the criminal act was committed but before conviction, is not an invalid pardon.
A trial court is not required to instruct the jury in the exact language sought by a party if the court's instructions adequately and correctly inform the jury of the applicable law.
When a statute is clear and unambiguous on its face, we will not disregard the letter of the statute under the pretext of pursuing its spirit, because the legislative intent is presumed clear from the face of the statute.
After the jury has advised the court of an impasse, the court may employ more than one N.D.R.Ct. 6.9 option without being advised again of an impasse.
