The North Dakota Supreme Court heard arguments Tuesday in the case of a Grand Forks man appealing his robbery conviction.

David Tucker was found guilty of robbing the Discontent store in February of 2017.

Attorney Kiara Kraus-Parr, representing Tucker, says no witnesses identified Tucker as the robber, and the vehicle he was apprehended in was not identified as the same one at the store.

Kraus-Parr also says witnesses changed their stories between the robbery and their testimony.

At trial, the state called nine witnesses, but the defense called none.

The state waived oral arguments today.

The high court is taking Kraus-Parr’s arguments under advisement.
