Where a defendant who was charged with illegal gun possession challenged the admission of evidence, the district court did not err in finding that the defendant voluntarily gave a DNA sample, so there was no error in denying the motion to suppress DNA evidence, and the judgment is affirmed because the court also did not abuse its discretion by allowing synthetic marijuana evidence because there was no showing that it was introduced only to prove the defendant’s criminal propensity.
Judgment is affirmed.
