Defendant, after being convicted of first-degree child neglect and unlawful delivery and possession of methamphetamine, appealed her conviction by assigning error to the trial court for not allowing her to present a closing argument during her bench trial. Held, the trial court did in fact err by waiving closing arguments without allowing defendant to object. Reversed and remanded.
