US v. Montes-Medina, No. 08-2940

By FindLaw Staff on July 07, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Conviction and sentence for drug crimes is affirmed where: 1) the district court did not err in denying defendant's request for a Franks hearing as the warrant application established probable cause; 2) the evidence was sufficient to support defendant's convictions for conspiracy and possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute; and 3) the court did not err in enhancing defendant's sentence for obstruction of justice based on its specific findings that defendant perjured himself at trial. Defendant Vega-Toscana's sentence is affirmed where the court did not commit procedural error in its calculation of the drug quantity attributable to defendant and in its calculation of the advisory Guidelines range.
