State v. Rogers, ___ N.C. App. ___, 796 S.E.2d 91 (Feb. 7, 2017)

rev’d in part on other grounds, ___ N.C. ___, 817 S.E.2d 150 (Aug. 17, 2018)

In this drug case, the trial court did not err by allowing an officer to testify about information collected from a non-testifying witness during an investigation. The statement was not offered for its truth but rather to explain the officer’s subsequent conduct and how the investigation of the defendant unfolded.
