Steven Dahl appeals a criminal judgment after a jury found him guilty of two counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Following a search of a house, Dahl was charged with four counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of bicycle theft. The case proceeded to trial. After the State rested its case in chief, Dahl moved for an acquittal. The district court granted Dahl’s motion for acquittal on the bicycle theft charge. The four counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia were decided by the jury. The jury found Dahl not guilty of two of the counts and guilty of the other two counts. One of the convictions was a felony.
On appeal, Dahl argues there was insufficient evidence to sustain the jury’s verdict, and the jury instructions incorrectly informed the jury of the applicable law on the felony charge.
