Constructive Possession of Drugs

Dec 11, 2019

Appellant, Andrew James Sims, appeals his convictions and sentences for trafficking in amphetamine or methamphetamine (28 grams or more, but less than 200 grams); possession of cocaine; sale, manufacture, delivery, or possession of cannabis (more than 20 grams); and possession of drug paraphernalia. Appellant argues that the trial court erred by denying his motion for judgment of acquittal because the State failed to prove that he was in constructive possession of the contraband. We agree and reverse.
