Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Jun 30, 2021

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Guthrie County, Thomas P. Murphy, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (12 pages)

            Dennis Glenn challenges the sufficiency of the evidence on his convictions for possession of marijuana and possession of methamphetamine.  He claims the State did not prove he knowingly possessed marijuana or methamphetamine, and did not prove he possessed methamphetamine, arguing possession of methamphetamine residue is not enough to support his conviction.  In addition, Glenn claims the district court erred in denying his request for a new trial, pointing to newly discovered evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm Glenn’s convictions for possession of marijuana and possession of methamphetamine, as the verdicts were supported by substantial evidence.  We also find the newly presented evidence does not justify granting Glenn’s request for a new trial.
