US v. Sanchez, No. 06-15143

By FindLaw Staff on October 30, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendants' marijuana possession convictions are affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in admitting defendants' cellular call records into evidence; 2) the district court properly instructed the jury that the prosecution's summaries of the call records were not evidence. However, certain defendants' sentences are reversed where the district court plainly erred in treating some drug offenses as "serious drug offenses" under 18 U.S.C. section 3559(c) and then imposing the mandatory life sentences.
