Description: Joshua Paul Hojian appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury found him guilty of violation of a domestic violence protection order and forgery. Hojian argues the verdict was not supported by sufficient evidence. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3) and (7). State v. Noorlun, 2005 ND 189, 20, 705 N.W.2d 819 ("A conviction may be justified on circumstantial evidence alone if the circumstantial evidence has such probative force as to enable the trier of fact to find the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Outcome: Moreover, a jury may find a defendant guilty even though evidence exists which, if believed, could lead to a not guilty verdict."
