COURT OF APPEALS

LC No. 96-007895
JOHN NORMAN KARCHEFSKI,
Before: Cavanagh, P.J., and Markman and Smolenski, JJ.
Defendant appeals as of right from his bench trial conviction for possession with intent to deliver
less than fifty grams of cocaine, MCL 333.7401(2)(a)(iv); MSA 14.15(7401)(2)(a)(iv). The trial court
sentenced defendant to lifetime probation. We affirm.
In his sole issue on appeal, defendant argues that the evidence was insufficient to support his
conviction. We disagree. Defendant argues that the testimony of the police officer was not credible;
however, questions of credibility are left to the trier of fact and will not be resolved anew by this Court.
People v Givans, 227 Mich App 113, 123-124; 575 NW2d 84 (1997). Viewing the evidence in a
light most favorable to the prosecution, a rational trier of fact could find that the essential elements of the
crime were proven beyond a reasonable doubt. See People v Wolfe, 440 Mich 508, 515; 489 NW2d
