State v. Falana, ___ N.C. App. ___, 802 S.E.2d 582 (Jul. 5, 2017)

Where there was insufficient evidence as to the ownership of the property in question, a vehicle, the evidence was insufficient to convict the defendant of felony conversion under G.S. 14-168.1. The indictment alleged that the vehicle was owned by a natural person named as Ezuma Igwe but the State failed to provide substantial evidence that Igwe owned the vehicle. North Carolina law defines a vehicle owner as the person holding legal title to it but here, Igwe never received title to the vehicle in question.
