HICKS, J. Following a jury trial, the defendant, Darlene Washburn, was convicted of possession of a schedule II controlled drug. See RSA 318-B:2 (2011) (amended 2013, 2015, 2016). On appeal, she argues that the Trial Court (Houran, J.) erred when it: (1) denied her motion to suppress evidence seized in warrantless searches of her purse, vehicle, and home; and (2) instructed the jury on a lesser-included offense that did not ensure jury unanimity and failed to protect her against double jeopardy. We affirm.
