Case No. 16-0563

State of Iowa
Danielle Brown

Defendant appeals from the judgment and sentence entered on her conviction of possession of a controlled substance (marijuana), second offense, in violation of Iowa Code section 124.401(5). Defendant contends the court erred in overruling her motion to suppress evidence obtained by the police from her purse during a warrant-based search of a residence where she was present as a visitor and not named in the warrant. Defendant also contends the court erred by ordering her to pay court costs associated with a dismissed charge.
