Highlight

A district court decision to dismiss a criminal charge is reviewed for abuse of discretion.

An exception to the definition of “manufacturing” exists when “preparation” or “compounding” of a controlled substance is done by an individual for the individual's own use. But “preparation” and “compounding” are only two of six statutory methods of manufacturing a controlled substance. The remaining four acts of “manufacturing” are “production,” “propagation,” “conversion,” or “processing.” Each of the remaining four acts can be done by an individual for individual use and still meet the statutory definition of “manufacturing.”

At a preliminary hearing, the State is not required to prove with absolute certainty or beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime occurred.

The element of intent rarely is established by direct evidence, and is a question for the jury if there is sufficient evidence to support an inference of the required intent.
