Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Conviction of defendant for possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in denying defendant's motion for judgment of acquittal as there was sufficient evidence to support the jury's verdict that he possessed the intent to distribute; 2) the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying defendant's motion for a new trial as the admission of a cooperating witness's written plea agreement as evidence of the witness's credibility is left to the district court's discretion; and 3) imposition of the mandatory minimum sentence did not violate defendant's rights to due process and equal protection of the law.
