State v. Phachoumphone, ___ N.C. App. ___, 810 S.E.2d 748 (Feb. 6, 2018)

review granted, ___ N.C. ___, ___ S.E.2d ___ (Sep. 20, 2018)

The evidence was sufficient to sustain a conviction for indecent liberties. The defendant challenged only the sufficiency of the evidence with respect to whether he took or attempted to take an indecent liberty with the victim. Having concluded that the State presented substantial evidence that the defendant digitally penetrated the child victim, the court concluded that the same act supports the challenged element of this offense.
