CASE LAW UPDATE: Whether the evidence was sufficient to support conviction of possession of child pornography?
Defendant was convicted of possession of child pornography in Olmsted County. Defendant appealed. Defendant argued that the evidence was insufficient to support his conviction of child pornography. Noting that a cell phone and hard drive recovered from defendant’s home contained images of young girls that the jury determined were child pornography, the Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that circumstantial evidence was sufficient to establish that defendant was in constructive possession of the computer hard drive. Affirmed.
State v. Kamencic, A20-0050, Olmsted County.
Minneapolis Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
