Highlight

An information is sufficient if it sets forth the offense in the words of the statute and is specific enough to provide a defendant with notice of the pending charges to enable the defendant to prepare a defense.
A statute is not unconstitutionally vague if the challenged language, when viewed under a reasonable person standard, gives adequate and fair warning of the prohibited conduct and creates minimum guidelines for those whose duty is to enforce the statute.
A district court's decision at a preliminary hearing that probable cause existed to bind a defendant over for trial is rendered moot once the trial is held, and the defendant may not, on appeal, challenge the decision that probable cause existed.
