Criminal Law Supreme Court Slip Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC20379 - State v. Porfil (Possession of narcotics with intent to sell; sale of narcotics within 1500 feet of a school; possession of drug paraphernalia; possession of narcotics; interfering with an officer “On appeal, the defendant challenges the Appellate Court’s conclusion that the evidence adduced at trial was sufficient to support his conviction of possession of narcotics with intent to sell by a person who is not drug-dependent and possession of narcotics because the state produced sufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he had constructive possession of the narcotics recovered by the police …we have determined that the appeal should be dismissed on the ground that certification was improvidently granted.”)
