State ex rel K.G.

SUPERIOR COURT OF NEW JERSEY APPELLATE DIVISION


April 11, 2008

STATE OF NEW JERSEY IN THE INTEREST OF K.G., JUVENILE-APPELLANT.

On appeal from Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division, Family Part, Monmouth County, Docket No. FJ-13-1186-07A.

Per curiam.

RECORD IMPOUNDED

NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION

Submitted April 1, 2008

Before Judges Skillman and LeWinn.

K.G., a juvenile, appeals from an adjudication of an act of delinquency that, if committed by an adult, would constitute possession of marijuana under fifty grams, in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:35-10a(4). After a dispositional hearing, the trial court imposed the legislatively mandated penalties and otherwise deferred disposition for one year.

On appeal, the juvenile's only argument is that the verdict was against the weight of the evidence. We are satisfied that the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to support the trial court's finding that the juvenile constructively possessed the marijuana that T.W. was carrying in her purse. Because this finding is sufficient to support the adjudication of delinquency for possession of marijuana, there is no need to consider whether the evidence was sufficient to support the trial court's finding that the juvenile also possessed the marijuana contained in the cigar blunt found under the front seat of the car in which she was riding. The juvenile's arguments do not warrant any discussion in addition to that contained in the trial court's oral opinion adjudicating that she committed an act of delinquency. R. 2:11-3(e)(2).

Affirmed.
