Highlight

In determining what constitutes an acquittal, the label used by the district court is not conclusive and the reviewing court will consider the substance of the district court's ruling to determine whether it actually represents a resolution of some or all of the factual elements of the offense charged.
The district court may withdraw from the jury's consideration particular factual issues or legal theories not supported by the evidence and submit the remaining factual issues and legal theories to the jury.
The State may elect to charge each misapplication of entrusted property as a separate offense, or the State may charge all misapplication of entrusted property as a single offense.
