LC No. 96-006485
SHAWN CARTER, a/k/a LASEAN DONELL
Before: Markman, P.J., and Bandstra and J.F. Kowalski*, JJ.
A Recorder’s Court jury convicted defendant, as charged, of possession with intent to deliver
less than fifty grams of cocaine, MCL 333.7401(1) and (2)(a)(iv); MSA 14.15(7401)(1) and (2)(a)(iv).
Defendant was sentenced to five to twenty years’ imprisonment. Defendant appeals as of right. We
Viewing the evidence in a light most favorable to the prosecutor, a rational trier of fact could
find beyond a reasonable doubt that defendant intended to deliver the cocaine in light of his possession
of forty-six individually packaged rocks of cocaine and his presence in a residence where a police
officer had recently witnessed suspected narcotic sales. People v Wolfe, 440 Mich 508, 515-517,
