State v. McClary, 198 N.C. App. 169 (Jul. 7, 2009)

There was sufficient evidence to survive a motion to dismiss where it showed that the defendant gave the child a letter containing sexually graphic language for the purpose of soliciting sexual intercourse and oral sex for money. Additionally, the jury could reasonably infer that the defendant’s acts of writing and delivering the letter to the child were taken for the purpose of arousing and gratifying sexual desire.
