State v. KamAnnotate this Case
Defendant was found guilty of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant and operating a vehicle after license and privilege have been suspended or revoked for operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant. Defendant appealed, arguing, among other things, that the district court erred in permitting the State to amend the charge against to Defendant to allege the required mens rea for the offense. The Intermediate Court of Appeals (ICA) affirmed. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding (1) the ICA correctly concluded that the district court properly permitted the State to amend the charge; and (2) Defendant’s remaining claims lacked merit.
