A majority of the Supreme Court affirmed the Superior Court's judgment and Commitment, which sentenced Appellant to three years of incarceration. Specifically, the majority concluded that there was sufficient evidence for a jury to find Appellant guilty of conspiracy and multiple counts of aiding and abetting embezzlement. Additionally, the majority held that the trial court's jury instructions-as to several counts of the Information-did not rise to the level of plain error, and were, thus, not grounds for reversal.
