In the Matter of D.L.D., 203 N.C. App. 434 (2010)

Held: 
Affirmed

In reviewing whether the trial court committed plain error by admitting an officer’s testimony about the identification of marijuana and its street value, the Court of Appeals reiterated that the first step in the plain erroranalysis is to determine whether the action complained of constitutes error at all. Plain error analysis requires a showing that the trial court committed error, and that absent the error, the trial court probably would have reached a different result.
