Much of evidence pointed to accused being visitor in the home

Accused charged with possession for purpose of trafficking. Accused and several others were arrested during execution of search warrant. Various articles that showed accused presence in the apartment had been found including his fingerprints on a bag of marijuana. Not enough evidence existed to convict accused beyond a reasonable doubt. Much of the evidence pointed to accused being a visitor in the home. There are a number of other reasonable possibilities beyond that accused had control of drugs.
