State of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee
Jeffrey Alan Olson, Defendant and Appellant
The opinion cannot be considered final until disposition of such petition for rehearing by the court or expiration of 14 days from filing date.
Appeal from the District Court of Morton County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Thomas J. Schneider, Judge.
Brian D. Grosinger, Assistant State's Attorney, Mandan, ND, for plaintiff and appellee.
Kent M. Morrow, Bismarck, ND, for defendant and appellant.
[¶1] Jeffrey Alan Olson appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury found him guilty of forgery under N.D.C.C. § 12.1-24-01. Olson argues the State failed to present sufficient evidence the checks were forged or counterfeited under the definition provided to the jury and the district court erred by refusing to grant Olson's Rule 29, N.D.R.Crim.P., motion for acquittal. We conclude sufficient evidence exists the checks were forged or counterfeited and summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3).
[¶2] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J., Daniel J. Crothers, Lisa Fair McEvers, Carol Ronning Kapsner, Dale V. Sandstrom.
