Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Apr 13, 2022

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Boone County, Stephen A. Owen, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Vaitheswaran and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (6 pages)

            Chantell Grimm appeals her conviction for possession of methamphetamine, arguing the district court abused its discretion in allowing certain evidence to reach the jury.  OPINION HOLDS: The evidence was relevant to whether Grimm knowingly possessed methamphetamine.  And although it was inherently prejudicial, we cannot find its probative value was substantially outweighed by the danger of unfair prejudice or that the district court abused its discretion by admitting it.
