State v. Gilmore

The Supreme Court reversed the judgment of the circuit court convicting Defendant of the class C felony of possession of a controlled substance, holding that there was insufficient evidence Defendant knew of the presence of the controlled substance for which she was convicted of knowingly possessing. On appeal, Defendant argued that the circuit court erred in overruling her motion for judgment of acquittal and entering judgment and sentence against her because the State did not present sufficient evidence that Defendant knowingly possessed the methamphetamine found by law enforcement officers. The Supreme Court agreed, holding that there was insufficient evidence to establish that Defendant knew or was aware of the methamphetamine recovered by the officers. View "State v.
