US v. Whittington, No. 08-3698

By FindLaw Staff on November 12, 2009 2:36 PM

Defendant's tax fraud conviction is affirmed where: 1) even if the burden were on the government to prove defendant's competence to stand trial, the government met its burden; and 2) the district court's finding by a preponderance of the evidence that defendant was competent to stand trial was not arbitrary, unwarranted, or clearly erroneous.
