Publisher Description

Defendant-appellant Carrie Ann Hanson appeals from the judgment of the circuit court of the first circuit, the Honorable Wendell K. Huddy presiding, convicting her of and sentencing her for (1) promoting a dangerous drug in the first degree, in violation of Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS) § 712-1241(1)(a)(i) (1993), (2) promoting a dangerous drug in the second degree, in violation of HRS § 712-1242(1)(b)(i) (1993),(3) unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, in violation of HRS § 329-43.5(a) (1993),and (4) restriction on possession, sale, gift or delivery of electric guns, in violation of HRS §§ 134-16(a) (1993)and 134-17(c) (Supp. 1999).On appeal, Hanson argues that the circuit court erred when it (1) determined that the police had properly executed the "knock and announce" requirement, (2) admitted items into evidence where proper foundation was not established through the officers who made the initial discovery, (3) permitted testimony regarding Hansons knowledge of Mario and Vernons drug involvement over an objection based on a lack of foundation and speculation, and (4) denied Hansons motion for mistrial, or, in the alternative, motion for new trial, because the jury instructions were prejudicially insufficient pursuant to State v. Jenkins, 93 Hawaii 87, 997 P.2d 13 (2000).
