Highlight

Personal benefit to the defendant is not an element of the crime of misapplication of entrusted property.
At a preliminary hearing in a criminal case, the State is not required to prove with absolute certainty or beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime occurred, but need only produce sufficient evidence to establish probable cause that a crime occurred and that the defendant committed it.
The district court may consider credibility of witnesses at a preliminary hearing only when, as a matter of law, the testimony is implausible or incredible. When there is a mere conflict in the testimony, a question of fact exists for the jury, and the judge must draw the inference favorable to the prosecution.
A "bonus" is a premium paid in addition to what is due or expected, or a payment in addition to or in excess of the compensation that would ordinarily be given.
