Controlled substance crime – methamphetamine

Defendant's conviction for possession of methamphetamine reversed

Defendant was convicted of 5th degree possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia in the County of Nobles, State of Minnesota.  Defendant was a back seat passenger in a minivan in which methamphetamine and paraphernalia were found.  The Minnesota Court of Appeals in a rare case, reversed defendant's conviction based upon circumstantial evidence on the grounds that these circumstances did not exclude a reasonable inference that the methamphetamine and pipe were in the minivan before defendant entered and that he did not know they were there.  Reversed.

State v. Hinds, A18-1267, Nobles County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
