Highlight

Issues not raised at the trial court level, even constitutional issues, generally will not be addressed for the first time on appeal.
The district court should generally wait to rule on a motion for a change of venue until after voir dire has been conducted to determine whether it is possible to select a fair and impartial jury.
In reviewing a sufficiency of the evidence claim, a criminal judgment will be affirmed if the judgment is supported by substantial evidence.
